Doug Gilbert was a Catholic missionary priest in Liberia, West Africa. He worked with the Society of African Missions (SMA) and was the pastor of a church in Pipeline, an outlying area of the capital Monrovia. Doug ministered during the Liberian civil war, and worked with a group of Catholic nuns who ran a hospital for children who were wounded in the war. 

Today, Doug is back in the States, is laicized (no longer an active Catholic priest) and married with a son. His day job is now information technology. However, he continues his missionary work through a ministry of songwriting and repairing old stringed instruments to give to homeless musicians.
