New CEO - Doug Nolte


The Board of Directors of the Union Rescue Mission has selected Doug Nolte to be the next Chief Executive Officer of the organization’s 68-year old ministry to Wichitans experiencing homelessness.

Nolte will leave a 26-year career in law enforcement and community service to succeed Denny Bender, who has been the Mission’s executive director since 2012.

Doug is a career police officer with the Wichita Police Department, rising to the rank of Captain and Bureau Commander where he supervised WPD’s Home Outreach Team. He is also familiar to many in Wichita through his nearly four years as the public information and media relations officer for the Wichita Police Department.

Doug Nolte began his service at URM on February 25th to coincide with Bender’s retirement.
