Pastor Darryl was born again in 1974 while attending Syracuse University studying Environmental Science and Forestry. In 1978, he was filled with the Holy Ghost at a Full Gospel businessmen's meeting and a short time later he was called into the ministry. In May of 1978, Darryl married his high-school sweetheart, and, in 1987, Darryl and his wife Francine sold everything they owned, purchased a car and moved with their three children (Joseph, Jacob, and Michelle) to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to attend Rhema Bible Training College.
Their fourth child, Jonathon, was born in 1988 at the City of Faith Hospital in Tulsa. Graduating in 1989 with a degree in Pastoral Ministry, Darryl went to work for Kenneth Hagin Ministries for the next 4 years. During those years, Francine and Darryl were also assistant School of the Bible teachers for the married 30-39 class at Rhema Bible Church (which had over 400 attendees every Sunday)
In 1993, obeying the call to bring the Word and Move of the Spirit of God to the northeastern United Stated, they moved back to New York. For the last 22 years, Darryl has been pastoring in New York.
In February of 2009, Francine and Darryl pioneered Triumphant Life Church in Vestal, NY. The church has been steadily increasing, and in 2010, moved to their current location at 1511 Davis Ave. in Endwell, NY.
Darryl coached high school sports (football, baseball, and basketball) for seven years, and Legion Baseball for over 10 years. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoys golfing, hunting, fishing, and skiing. He enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren.
Pastor Darryl and Francine have a vision to minister to people of all ages and cultural diversities. They love God, love His Word, and love the move of the Spirit of God - and out of all this flows a great love for people.
They believe God has called them to bring a revival to the Northeast and beyond.
