Darren was born in Alaska to parents who were serving there with Arctic Missions, but spent most of his time growing up in Salem, OR. He accepted Christ at an early age and is grateful to be part of a family who is following God. He started married life with Carly the day after they both graduated from Corban University in 2002. After earning a degree in Business Management, he had the opportunity to work in various business settings before joining the staff at Easthaven in 2014. He and Carly have attended and been involved at Easthaven since 2005. Their downtime these days is spent hanging out with their son, Owen, and daughter, Olive.
