Derick has been in ministry since 1975 and was ordained in 1996. In California, he served as associate pastor from 1996 to 2013 .

Derick and Pamela came to Florida in 2013, to be of assistance to Pamela’s parents who were having major medical challenges. Derick began attending the men’s group in 2013 and in 2017 became a part of New Song’s pastoral staff; having transferred his ordination to the Christian Missionary and Alliance denomination.

The Lord called Pamela to worship dance in 2003. For the past 20 years, Pamela has co-founded and/or directed four unique worship dance ministries, ranging from mixed-ages to senior adults. She currently leads Adoration in Motion, a community senior adult worship dance group, with it’s members from various local churches. Pamela is currently Director and main choreographer of Adoration in Motion and has been doing this for the past 7 years.

We have found a home at New Song and look forward to continuing the legacy of preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, making disciples, equipping the saints and furthering the Kingdom of God.
