The Lord called Darin to salvation during his senior year in high school and into the ministry nine years later. Darin and his wife Beth strive to serve the Lord by encouraging the church to glorify Jesus Christ through participation in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). In June of 2016, Darin became the Senior Pastor of New Hope Baptist Church. Darin’s vision for New Hope is to see the church have a measurable impact on the community through the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Darin has two amazing daughters: Ava and Sophia. They are his joy and blessings from God. Darin completed his Doctorate of Ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, loves being outdoors, and looks forward to breaking the things that he attempts to fix around the house.
