Darril Deaton has served as pastor, counselor and Bible teacher for over four decades.

As a Chaplain to victims and a First Responder, Deaton has been an eyewitness to the tragedy, devastation, and destruction of terrorist attacks and natural disasters, from NYC after 9/11 to the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. He has witnessed the sort of cruelty one human could perpetrate against another, leaving families, communities, and individuals to make sense of it all.
Yet through all that has happened, God was still loving, faithful, and ready to help put the pieces together. There always seemed to be a divine reason why things happened the way they did.
