Darren Schalk is 34 and has been married for 12 years to Kristi. They have three children, Jake, 8, Abby & Alli (identical twins), 6. At the conclusion of this paragraph, he will no longer write in the third person.
I have a Bachelor’s in Pastoral Ministry and a Master’s in Church Leadership and Administration. I’ve served in various church leadership roles, including youth pastor, associate pastor, and senior pastor. While attending seminary, I had the great privilege of working as an advocate for the developmentally disabled.
I recently signed a contract with Charisma House for my book! It will hit shelves October 1st, and it will be under the Passio line. You can check out the cover in the sidebar or read more about it by clicking here.
I currently serve as the Coordinator of Christian Education and Curriculum Development for the Church of God of Prophecy and Associate Editor for One Accord Resources, Inc. (so my name tag simply says “Darren, who does a lot”). We produce Christian curriculum that reaches approximately 80,000 people every week (English) and is translated around the globe. I’m also a member of several interdenominational boards and committees concerned with discipleship.
I book speaking engagements regularly, and if you’d like to have me, I’d love to come and meet you! For information, just contact me through one of the links below. God Bless!
