Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Derik grew up in Hickory, NC, and went to Appstate where he met his beautiful bride Allison.  He received his Masters at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and God gave Allison and Derik the joy of their lives, Jacob, who is now entering high school where he plays in the marching band. Pastor Derik served in student ministry for 17 years, and is now shepherding the community of faith at Winton Baptist Church. He is excited for the journey ahead and in his spare time enjoys listening to James Taylor, Toby Mac, Skillet, Hillsong United and a touch of Darious Rucker & Journey. He also enjoys hiking the Appalachian Trail, helping anyone (and everyone!) get a better grasp of tech and most importantly doing whatever it takes to make sure as many people know Jesus as possible.
