Darin Schug

Teaching Minister

Darin discovered his passion for ministry while serving as a staff intern with CRU– a campus ministry group at Michigan State University. After realizing the call that God had on his life to preach and teach the Word he decided to continue growing in his faith at Moody Theological Seminary of Chicago. He is currently pursuing his Masters of Divinity with an emphasis on New Testament Theology and Church Leadership.
