Rev. Derek Parson
I have had the joy of serving in the crazy and amazing world of youth ministry for over 20 years. I have pastored in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and I am currently serving in Ohio I have a Bachelor's degree in youth ministry from MVNU and a Master's degree in Youth and Young Adult ministries from Messiah College. I am also an author for downloadyouthministry.com, and founder of youthministrycafe.com.
I am married to the love of my life, Aubree, and we have two awesome sons: Waverly (6), and Wren (4). I am a self proclaimed Star Wars Geek, hope to visit all of the National Parks in the US, and I Iove discussing life and theology over a good cup of coffee.
