More About Daryl

Daryl is employed with Interim Pastor Ministries and will guide us through an intentional process of evaluating and elevating our church before hiring our next lead pastor! Daryl’s a family man. He and his wife, Elaine, have adult children and a few grandchildren living throughout the U.S. Daryl and Elaine are embracing all things Wisconsin – a far cry from their current residence in Tennessee and the two decades they lived in Florida before that. He’s a writer, a reader (he loves a good mystery!) and an interactive preacher. To Daryl, puns are the highest form of humor so, not to be cheesy, but we think Daryl will warm up to Oakwood in no time.
