Darrell oversees all aspects of Grace Place Wellness Ministries. He’s passionate about helping ministry workers across the entire spectrum of Christianity excel in their callings for their whole careers.

A native of Portland, OR, Darrell graduated with his Masters in Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, in 1982. He then served thirty years as a parish pastor in St. Louis, MO, and Saginaw, Mich.

He and his wife, Carol, attended the first Grace Place Wellness retreat in the fall of 2000, then began leading retreats in Grace Place Wellness’ earlier years. He also earned his Doctor of Ministry in 2006.

In the fall of 2012, Darrell became Grace Place Wellness’ first full-time Program Director. He was instrumental in developing the Ministry Team Wellness Retreat. In December 2019, he became our Interim President and CEO.

Darrell and Carol live just a few short miles from their three children and four grandchildren in the St. Louis area. He enjoys spending time with them, woodworking, and playing golf.

Oh, and did we mention golf? Darrell really likes golf!
