Darin became our lead pastor in August 2010. Before that he helped our founding pastor Jeff Calloway launch Bridge Church in 2007 by serving in the role of Worship and Students pastor. Darin and his wife Deborah were married in 2007 one month after the launch of Bridge Church’s weekly worship services. They have three children: Landon, Emmaline, and Isaac. Darin holds a Bachelor’s degree from Missouri State University, as well as Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. For fun the Averys enjoy hanging out with other families and friends, bike riding, swimming at the outdoor YMCA, and exploring Lake County’s many beautiful Metro Parks.
