Darrin was born in Georgia, but did not live there long. He has lived in Louisiana, New Jersey, Texas, Florida, Kansas & Botswana. He is a graduate of Kansas State University with two B.S. degrees. He joined the Peace Corps and served in Gaborone, Botswana. This is where he was baptized into Christ, met his beautiful bride, Cheryl, and they had their first child. They then moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where their second child was born. Darrin has served as a youth Deacon for over 17 years and volunteered with college students for over 10 years. He has served on the Executive Committee for Soma and is now honored to be the campus minister. He is a volunteer at Youth Villages for Spiritual Life, World Bible School teacher & has been blessed to travel on mission trips to Ghana, Liberia, Mexico, Ukraine & domestic destinations as well. Darrin loves comic books, sci fi, all kinds of movies, games and spending time with college students.
Abby is from what many people forget is a state, Vermont. She moved to Memphis in the fall of 2017 and quickly became a core member of the ministry. Because she never leaves, Soma decided to make her an intern. She's very excited for the new paid responsibilities. She's new, so be nice. When she isn't making Refuge slides or making copies, she's studying for her BA in Early Childhood Education (but like all undergraduate students, that is subject to change).
