Darla is a Bible teacher, conference leader, certified lay speaker, praise & worship leader, music director, composer, theater arts performer/director, and much more. But most importantly, she is a child of God who believes that every person is precious to God and needs to hear the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Darla is the founder of Remnant Ministries, a multi-faceted outreach ministry which began in 1982. The heart of Remnant Ministries is a ministry with juvenile detention centers.
Darla’s life was changed when she attended a Christian concert at the age of 13, and she heard the message that Jesus wanted to be her friend and had a wonderful plan for her life. She continues to share this same message of hope today, especially with the troubled youth of this generation. She also serves as Director of Music for Calvin United Presbyterian Church and is an active certified lay speaker for the Greensburg District in the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Darla and her husband, George, have been married since 1987 and enjoy traveling and working together in ministry. Together with their two dogs (Amber Rose and Shtiya), they make their home in the mountains of Pennsylvania. God blessed them with their wonderful son, Joshua, and his beautiful wife, Becky.
Darla’s heartfelt desire is to bring glory and honor to God. Her prayer is that through the Living Word of God, others will come to a saving knowledge of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and all God’s children will be encouraged to make a deeper commitment and will grow in their relationship with Him.
