Derek Freed

Associate Pastor

Describe yourself in three words:
Strategic, Creative, Faithful.

What is your favorite verse?
Matthew 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord', will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me you evil doers'!"

What is your favorite movie quote?
"I guess it comes down to a simple choice really. Get busy living or get busy dying." (The Shawshank Redemption)

What do you love most about your ministry?
"I love being a part of what God is doing in people's lives. I love seeing students put their faith in Christ, seeing students decide to give their entire lives to God. And I love dreaming, planning, and creating opportunities for students to have ridiculously and unimaginable amounts of fun and connection with God."
