I am Rev. Douglas Trouten. I was born and raised in the Flint, Michigan area. Growing up raised as a Presbyterian It wasn't until later after I graduated from High School I started questioning some of my beliefs. About the time I received my Ordination I realized I was just going through the motions. Since my Ordination I have been on a spiritual journey of self discovery, attending various religious services ranging from Islam, to Judaism to Catholic, to various Protestant services, to Morman, to even one Hindu service.
I have come to the conclusion that I am an Agnostic Theist, I believe in a Supreme Being, but I want the proof that yours is the one true religion before giving your religion my faith though because I was raised in a Christian setting I do have a slight Christian leaning in my beliefs, but I know that it may come about that another religion is the one true religion.
I was initially ordained with the Monastery until further research lead me to here and the ULCHQ, reordained here on 30APRIL2008, and I have ignored my Monastery Ordination since even though it is still active.
