Born to a military family, Darren grew up in San Diego, Calif., and Washington, D.C. He became a committed Christian through the ministry of InterVarsity on his college campus. After college he felt the call to vocational ministry while attending the LIFT discipleship program at Camp-of-the-Woods in upstate New York.
He received a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Mary Washington. He is also a graduate of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School where he earned a Master of Divinity and Master of Theology in New Testament.
As President, Darren overseas the general direction of the ministry and serves as an advocate for pastors with little access to formal training and thoughtful cross-cultural theological engagement.
Darren and his wife Amy live in Andover, Minn., along with their five children.
