Picture of Pastor and First Lady

Our Pastor

Pastor Derrick E. Young and First Lady Gale Young are high school sweethearts from Gary, Indiana. They have two children, Daris Young and Amari (Young) Berry, a son-in-law, Keon Berry and a granddaughter, Zaria Berry.

Our Pastor served in our military for 15 years before he became medically separated in 1999 with an Honorable Discharge. He received his calling to the ministry on February 19, 2001. He faithfully served as the Associate Pastor of First Baptist Church of Oceanway where he was also ordained on August 17, 2003. It was here that he felt the call to return to school to become better equipped to serve Jesus Christ in His Kingdom.

We Welcome You

Our services are warm and celebratory. Our praise teams sing songs that minister to the heart and soul, and then our pastor teaches God’s word; he makes it applicable to our life.

At the end of service we will extend the offer to be saved or join or family. If you desire we will pray with you and, if needed, we will continually walk with you through your life journey.

First time guest are given gift bags to show our appreciation.
