Darnell and Lauren are high school sweethearts who met in Ohio at their church youth group. Worshipping together in their youth praise band helped bring them together. They are now raising two beautiful children in Ooltewah, TN. Both have a heart to see youth and teenagers come to know and serve Jesus; and also for “broken” families.

Darnell serves as youth and worship pastor, while Lauren serves as a teacher  in the Children’s Ministry at Orchard Church. They are currently raising 3-year old Ellianah, and 2 year old Jayce, cooking vegan meals, exercising, pastoring, Netflix and chilling, and looking to see disciples and worshippers of the one true God being made here in Tennessee, and then out to the world.
