|She grew up in a Christian home with loving parents, but her faith became her own in college. Her hunger for the Word of God flourished and she discovered the power of Christian community and discipleship relationships as catalysts for spiritual growth. A native Texan, she loves the beach and the mountains, and enjoys hiking, camping, and hammocking. She is a voracious podcast listener and book reader. She is excited to join staff and is thrilled to be used by God to strengthen His kingdom!
||Raised in a gospel-centered home in Mesquite, TX, his father pastored a church. After being discipled into a relationship with Christ, Derek accepted a call to ministry and was licensed and ordained to carry the weight of preaching the gospel of Christ. He is currently completing his BA in Business at the University of North Texas while interning in Spiritual Formations at The Village Church in Dallas. Derek is married and a father to his beautiful daughter Aubree. He's a great addition to the D-Group team!
|| She became a Christian in grade school, but her family background didn't provide a true picture of God. Legalism was a crushing weight she sought to escape, leading her to terrible choices in college. After she married her husband Trevor, she began studying the Word, where God revealed His character. When they moved from Seattle to Texas, she began to see the things she'd learned take shape -- God really was her Comforter and Provider! She joined D-Group shortly after the move and counts it among her best decisions!
