and Director of Listener Engagement, Walk FM

Derek has only been in radio for a little over two years, but music and radio have impacted him all his life.  Before he joined the PAR & Walk FM family, he had spent the previous seven years as a youth pastor.  Derek’s passion is to see the world radically changed through the power of Jesus Christ; he believes that local Christian radio and local ministries is the key to this.  His experience in pastoral ministry and passion make him a great fit as the Director of Impact Services.

Derek is committed to developing partnerships and opportunities for the listeners of PAR to be involved in changing their communities, like their current partnerships with World Help and God’s Pit crew.

Derek has two amazing sons, Ezekiel and Kingston.
