Darrin has worked in churches in every area of ministry for about 20 years. As a Phoenix native, he led worship for multiple college groups when not playing guitar in secular venues. After high school, he went with YWAM on mission teams to Russia and China, but his heart always gravitated towards worship. He met his wife, Amanda, in Tucson where he was the studio manager at a local church. From there they started leading worship together and eventually got married.
Darrin was hired as the Tech & Media Director at New Life in 2015 where he has been able to use his vast experience with bands, tech, web design, stage setup, worship, and youth ministries. Like his wife, he a passion for mentoring people in their giftings and is usually quoting the phrase "You should always work yourself out of a job".
Darrin spends his free time building Lego creations with his 3 kids, cooking, and playing XBOX with friends.
