Darryl's chief desire is to see souls added to the Kingdom of God. He is committed to loving the people of God and passionately teaching the Word of God for the equipping of the saints to fulfill the Great Commission (making disciples who go and make disciples).
Darryl's ministry experience has included part-time youth, associate and worship ministry. His experience also has included full-time social work ministry as well as full-time worship, discipleship and preaching ministries. (He holds a Bachelors degree from Cincinnati Christian University in Biblical Studies.)
Darryl's heart is for people to receive the grace of God that allows the power of Christ to bring hope, healing and victory for all who will receive it.
Darryl shares life and ministry with his lovely wife Jane. They are blessed with three daughters- Eliza (son-in-law Drew), Ellie and Elana.
Jane Denney has been serving as our Elementary Director since January 2023. Although this is a part-time position, Jane's energy and diligent work to help kids grow in their faith and connect families together has produced much fruit for our church. Her heart for kids and families is evident in all she does and we are excited about this ministry to youth and families.
Ben has wanted to go into ministry for most of his life. His own youth group experiences showed him just how much he enjoys working with the next generation of kids. He also knows the importance of raising children in the church. Proverbs 22:6 states, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not depart from it.” (Prov 22:6 NIV).
Ben's goal is to be a servant. He wants to help equip the kids to go out and serve God wherever they end up. He also believes he is not only a resource for the kids, but also a resource for the parents. He hopes to work with them to help them raise their children up in a strong, godly manner.
