Immediately after high-school, Derrick joined the US Air Force where he served 6 years full time and 10 years in the Reserves. During His military service, he has been to Kyrgystan, Iraq, England, and Afghanistan. On his tour in Iraq, he met his life-long friend Clark. In Iraq, Derrick also took a secular course in World Religions that further rooted his foundation in Christianity.
In 2012, Derrick enrolled in Liberty University to begin his formal theology training pursuing an Associates in Religion. Since 2011, he and his wife Katina and daughter Aubrianna have been attending River of Light Church of God in Warner Robins, Ga. He also has a son named Isaiah. In the summer of 2015, Derrick and Katina were blessed to have become grandparents of a happy baby boy.
Other than theology, Derrick has a passion for running and learning.
Clark was born in Cleveland Ohio in 1984, the oldest child and only boy of a family of six. He grew up in a Christian home, going to church since before he could remember. He asked Jesus into his heart at the ripe old age of five after church one warm Sunday morning.
He was home-schooled all the way through high school and started college at Cuyahoga Community College close to where he lived. After a few semesters he decided to join the Air Force Reserves. A few years after completing basic training and tech school, Clark earned his first Associates degree in Graphic Design at that same community college.
He has since served or been deployed to several countries including a six month tour in Iraq in 2008 where he met Derrick. After learning they both shared a relationship with Jesus and a love for theology, they had many conversations about the Bible and their walk with Christ and have kept in touch ever since over the phone and through texting since they live in different parts of the country. It was also in Iraq where Clark earned his second Associates degree in Criminal Justice through the Community College of the Air Force. After serving in the military for six years he chose not to re-enlist and was honorably discharged.
In 2010 Clark married Melissa, a wonderful women who loves Jesus. After getting married Clark decided to go back to school for his Bachelors degree and in 2012, got his degree in Art Studio with a minor in Computer Imaging. After college he took a job in banking and is currently an Anti-Money Laundering Investigator for KeyBank. He has since had an amazing baby girl named Jezi in 2013 and his wife is pregnant with their second child due in 2016. Clark and his family currently serve at Journey Community Church. He enjoys playing piano on the worship team.
Derrick and Clark created Theologetics.org to be a place where other Christians could come if they have questions about God, where believers could post answers to questions they have personally researched, and most importantly, to answer questions non-believers have about who Jesus is.
