Who We Are

    Dr. Darren McClellan


    We are pleased to announce that Bishop Graves has announced his intention to appoint
    Dr. Darren McClellan to be our Senior Pastor beginning July 1. Many of you already know
    Dr. McClellan as he is currently serving as the District Superintendent over the Baypines District. Darren walked closely alongside our church during Dr. Glaize’s leave of absence last year and was a great support and encouragement to our church, preaching in our pulpits on a number of occasions. In addition to serving in his current role as D.S., Darren has served churches in our conference for over 20 years, his most recent pastoral appointment as Senior Pastor of Perdido Bay UMC in Pensacola. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Florida, his M.Div. from Candler School of Theology and his Doctorate of Ministry from Princeton Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Kristi, have three sons--Joshua, John, and Max.
