Pastor Darden was born again on Easter Sunday morning in the year of 1986. He felt the call into the ministry later that same year, serving as youth leader of Macedonia Baptist Church in Powell, Tenn. Pastor Darden received his Ordination into the ministry in 1987, upon accepting his pastoral appointment at New Life Baptist Church in Powell, Tenn. During a revival meeting in which Pastor Darden was ministering, he received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost at his home in the year of 1988. Feeling the call to embrace the fullness of God, he began a bible study with 6 people to teach and move farther into the direction of the Holy Ghost and his gifts. In March of 1989, Pastor Darden pioneered a fresh and new Pentecostal work, called Redemption Harvest Church, where he is still serves as the senior pastor.
Pastor Darden has always felt the call to do the work of an evangelist first, making full proof of his ministry. Just as the Apostle Paul instructed Timothy to do. With a great call on his life, while being confirmed through several prophetic utterances, Pastor Darden's ministry has gone international. His message of Redemption and Holy Ghost Power is preached with a great anointing, with signs and wonders following. Pastor Darden currently serves as Vice President of the Full Gospel Ministerial Association of America, located it Berea, Kentucky and is currently travelling and speaking at meetings both nationally and internationally.
