Having been raised in the home of Rev. and Mrs. G. C. Killingsworth, pastors of several churches in the Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas areas, Darron Killingsworth was exposed to life in ministry from his birth. After answering the Call of God on his life to the Ministry in 1987, Darron attended Jackson College of Ministries in Jackson, MS, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology in 1992. Darron returned that same year to focus on studying music in order to round out his ministry. In 1993, Darron married Tracie Scaff, a fellow student at JCM, who received the Holy Ghost in 1989, and who was studying in the field of Education, a field of study that was later completed at Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Education. After their marriage, Darron served as youth pastor for Greater Life United Pentecostal Church in Corinth, MS until the Fall of 1994, and as Assistant Pastor of Ocean Springs United Pentecostal Church from 1995 until 1997. In 1998, while working as a Life skills trainer and mentoring recruiter for the Northwest Region of the state of Mississippi Department of Human Services Faith-Based Initiative, Faith & Families, Darron and Tracie accepted the call to their first Pastorate, in Greenwood, MS. In 2000, the Killingsworth family accepted the Pastorate of Greater Life United Pentecostal Church in Corinth, MS, and served there until 2002, when they returned to Texas and served under Pastor Carlton Watkins, in Daingerfield, TX. In late 2009, God began dealing with the Killingsworths and preparing them to resume pastoring. This calling was realized in March 2010, when the Killingsworths came to pastor First United Pentecostal Church of Groesbeck, TX. Pastor Killingsworth is currently employed with a local police department where he serves as a civilian Supervisor in the Records Division. Tracie Killingsworth is an elementary school teacher, certified in General Education - Early Childhood through 4th grade, Special Education – Early Childhood through 12th grade, English Language Arts – 4th grade through 8th grade, and English as a Second Language – Early Childhood through 12th grade. Pastor Killingsworth is effectively able to communicate complicated concepts in an understandable manner, matching the message to the audience, and is a revivalist with a firm belief in the tremendous tool of Home Bible Studies and Discipleship as the key factors to successful church growth. Pastor and Sister Killingsworth are believers in the Apostolic Doctrine and practice Holiness in their lifestyle. The Killingsworths believe strongly in sacrifice and in giving to God our all, as it is His to begin with, and that He will bless the gift and return it, again, and have come to know that holding on to the legacy of yesterday’s truths allows the church of today to see the way of revival for tomorrow more clearly.
