He has served in various roles at several youth camps, coaches his kids’ baseball and t-ball teams, and drives a bus for Liberty School. Darren enjoys pretending he is smarter than he is, playing sports, reading non-fiction, and taking naps. His wife Jessica is a school administrator and puts up with a lot (please pray for her). They are blessed with three kids, Devon, Keely, and Hooper.
