Doug Nolte


In early 2019, the Board of Directors of the Union Rescue Mission welcomed Doug Nolte to be the new Chief Executive Officer of the organizations 69-year old ministry to Wichitans experiencing hunger, homelessness and poverty.

Doug was a 27-year career police officer with the Wichita Police Department, rising to the rank of Captain and Bureau Commander where he provided oversight to WPD’s Homeless Outreach Team along with many other officers, civilian employees and WPD’s Administrative Services.  Doug is familiar to many in Wichita through his years as the public information and media relations officer for the WPD.

Doug knows the streets of Wichita and he is passionate about delivering hope and healing to those struggling in the community.  Most importantly, Doug is a committed follower of Christ who seeks to honor God as he leads his family and Union Rescue Mission.
