Derek Duvall

Lead Pastor

I was born and raised in Indiana, until I moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 2004. There I attended and graduated from Johnson University with a degree in Youth Ministry/Preaching. After graduating I took a position as a student pastor in the Knoxville, TN area, and was there for ten years. Then a few years ago, God began to give my wife and I a great burden for those who do not yet know the Jesus of the Bible, in the greater Salt Lake City area...
