Our Pastors

Pastors Derrick and Tracie Millard met in college while participating in campus ministry. They have served in ministry together for over thirty years. They are both school of ministry graduates. Pastor Tracie from Crenshaw Christian Center School of Ministry in Los Angeles, California. Pastor Derrick from the Spirit of Faith Bible Institute in Temple Hills Maryland. They have spent many years serving the local church in roles ranging from volunteering to executive leadership, Bible Institute instructors, and Pastoral leadership. Their years of service and experience have prepared and equipped them to love, teach, lead, and train God’s people and LIFT them to their next level relationship in Christ.
