Palmyra Methodist Church, Germanton, NC: List of Pastors and Ministers
MethodistPeter 1835-1839NCStokes CoGermanton, Palmyra Methodist Church
PETER DOUB (1796-1869),served Tabernacle Church as one of the churches on the Henderson Circuit to which he was appointed from December 1848to November 1850. Doub was the child of German immigrants who settled in Stokes County, NC, where Doub was born. Doub's father had been converted to Christianity through the ministry of Phillip William Otterbein, (the founder of the United Brethern Church, which would later join with the Methodist Church to form the United Methodist Church in 1968).As a child, Peter came to know Methodist ministers well because his parents offered their home to Methodist circuit riders as a preaching place. At the age of six while at a camp meeting on his father's land, Peter gave his life to God. Soon after his profession of faith at one of these services, Doub joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. Later he would feel called to preach.

On the recommendation of the Yadkin Circuit, Doub was admitted to the Virginia Conference in 1818. From his first appointment sprung a concern that Doub's sermons were far too short. The young minister took the advice of a friend and changed his method so that not only did his sermons become longer, they also became more eloquent. Doub later studied at Trinity College (now Duke University), receiving a Doctor of Divinity degree from that college. Later, Doub would serve as a professor of Biblical Literature at Trinity College. Described by one person as 'never unemployed, never triflingly employed,' the Reverend Dr. Doub was remembered at his death as a minister who 'studied, traveled, prayed and preached incessantly.'

During his years of service in the North Carolina Conference, Doub served numerous churches. He was elected to serve as a delegate to General Conference four times. At one of these conferences, an effort was made to elect Doub to the episcopacy, only to fail. Before his death in 1869,Doub served fifty-two years to the service of God in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
