Hello, my name is Darren Emory.
Some things I love:




Follower of Jesus, Husband, Daddy, Pastor, Leadership Nut

I never thought I'd be a Pastor.

When Jesus changed my life as a 15 year old, I knew that I had discovered something that the world needed to hear about.

Fast forward 16 years and I am now in a commitment to full-time ministry and helping people discover their purpose in Christ. My heart beats for those far from Jesus. Closely after that is a desire to equip leaders and help others unwrap their God-given gifts that lie just underneath the surface.

I've been married 8 years to my wonderful bride, Debi, and we've got two kids. I'm so grateful for all that God has done and will do in our lives as we continue to seek His will. Thanks for reading!


Varied experience in many church leadership roles.
