Pastor Derrick came on staff here at Living Word at the beginning of the 2013. His wife, Carrie, along with their three children: Matthew, Lucas, and Natalie have loved being a part of the family here at Living Word.
Pastor Derrick and Carrie both grew up in Marysville, Ohio, so family is really important to them! They love spending time together whether at home or in one of the many activities in which their children are involved.
Derrick been a pastor since June of 2002 and has served in three different churches with roles ranging from Assistant Pastor to Missions Pastor. He has a real heart for meeting new people and growing God’s family.
Pastor Derrick says the most frequently question he gets asked is “why did you become a pastor?” For him the answer is an easy one – “I’ve never wanted to do much else, and believe me, I’ve tried other careers. I’ve sold cars, worked landscaping, cooked in restaurants, and other odd jobs around; but nothing has ever been my passion like leading people into a deeper relationship with Jesus. I’m truly excited to see what God has in store for us here at Living Word.”
