Keeping Student Ministry In Tune

He was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, and graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.S. in Construction Management. Derek's parents are Marti and Gil, and they live in AZ. His older sister Lindsey is married to Trevor and they live in New York. Derek's oldest sister, Shannon, is married to Kevin. They live in Nashville and they have a boy and a girl. Derek loves spending time with his family and playing games with his niece, Keely, and nephew, Keegan.
