Pastor Darren was born and raised in the town of Gander. After feeling the call to pastoral ministry he attended Eastern Pentecostal Bible College, now known as Master’s College and Seminary.
After graduating he served as Youth Pastor at Kingsway Assembly in Kentville, NS from 2000-2003 and Assistant Pastor at Westside Tabernacle in Corner Brook, NL from 2004-2014. In 2014 Pastor Darren and his family moved to Stephenville and now serves as the Lead Pastor here at Zion Pentecostal Church.
Pastor Darren is married to Elizabeth and together they have 3 amazing children; Micah, Jonathan, and Janelle. He has a great heart for people and desires to see the church grow in faith, love, unity, and evangelism! He is excited about what God is doing in the Bay St. George area, and together with the congregation of Zion, their desire is to make the love of Christ known within the community.

Pastor Gerad graduated from Tyndale University College in the Spring of 2016. PG had left his career as a Licensed Practical Nurse following God’s leading into full time ministry, and has been serving in the PAONL since his graduating year. Interestingly, he had concluded his training with an internship in Stephenville – He and his growing family are thrilled to have come and serve in ministry here once again! Jesus said, "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but Him who sent me." [Mark 9:37].
That’s the goal – welcoming children so they get to experience the life and faith of those who trust our Good God. From the time they’ve just been born through all their growing, our goal at ZPC is to give them our care and teaching them to live up to their best selves in God’s grand design. Next Generation ministry centers on being Jesus-in-person with those who are making their next steps in their life’s journey, carrying them through trouble and celebrating every win, teaching them their self worth and a deeper sense of purpose, challenging them to right the wrongs they see in their world, inviting their peers to be part of the adventure, turning nobody away, all the while leaning on our Heavenly Father who loves them just as they are – and too much to leave them that way.
