Evangelist Darren McClerren is the Founder and President of Darren McClerren Ministries. Mr. McClerren’s desire and purpose is to share the love of Christ around the world while helping others receive salvation in Jesus Christ, as well as, the healing and deliverance that Jesus Christ has made available to all.
Mr. McClerren was born October 22nd 1977 and was raised on a livestock and grain farm in Thompsonville, IL. At the age of nine years old he gave his heart to Christ at a Vacation Bible School on June 16th 1987 and soon after received his water baptism. From this point forward he continued to work on the farm while learning the trade of carpentry from his father and grandfather. On June 19th 1999 he married Cindy (Nolen) McClerren and they have two children; Julie and Ashlee.
Mr. McClerren answered the call to preach the Gospel on April 30th 2003 while serving as a youth pastor and singing in a Southern Gospel Trio. Since having answered the call to preach, he has traveled and delivered the Gospel in many churches in Illinois, Alabama, and North Carolina. He also had the privilege to be the pastor of four small rural Baptist churches, two in Southern Illinois and two in North Carolina while working full time in the construction industry which often kept him and his family relocating for work.
In 2008 Mr. McClerren had a deep desire to have a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and began to really search the scriptures with the help of the Holy Spirit, to know ALL of God’s truth. God honored his request and soon after he received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and now operates in the gifts of the spirit daily in his life. God has used him, through the laying on of hands and, at time, through the gift of healing, to help several to receive the healing that Christ made available by His stripes. He has seen many healed from diseases and demonic influence by the power exercised by faith in the Name of Jesus.
On March 18th, 2014 Mr. McClerren’s life was totally changed. While visiting North Carolina from San Diego, CA where he and his family were living, he was asked to teach at a Band of Brothers Men’s Fellowship on Tuesday March 18th. He delivered a message on “Confronting Satan as Jesus did with “It is Written.” After the message they held a healing service in which several men came forward and received healing for various diseases and broken hearts.
After the service had ended, three men at different times told Mr. McClerren that God had a word for him. That word from God was this; “You are anointed by God for a great purpose that will be bigger than anything you have ever imagined and soon you will be leaving your construction career to fulfill His purpose for your life.” Mr. McClerren gladly and humbly received this prophecy as spoken by these three men and began over the following weeks to fast and pray for God’s direction and purpose for his life. Within a month, God had revealed to him that he was to lead a world-wide healing and deliverance ministry and that he was to leave his construction career and that he and his family were to relocate to Fayetteville, NC and there establish Darren McClerren Ministries.
On June 13th 2014, Mr. McClerren exercised his faith, relocated to Fayetteville, NC as God directed and has established Darren McClerren Ministries. Presently Mr. McClerren is attending Charis Bible College (online) pursuing a Degree in Biblical Studies (2016-2019) and is also attending Rhema Correspondence Bible School pursuing a certificate in Biblical Studies (2015-2017). Praise God for His Faithfulness!!!
