PROFILE: Evangelist Thomas Derrick

RAVEN Minstries Evangelist, Thomas Derrick, has been one of the mainstays of the ministry since its inception in 1996. Having worked with Pastor Troy in his founding of the Dayspring Dream Center Church (Amarillo, Texas) since 1992, Bro Thomas has been a constant participant in the expansion of the ministry to the Nation.
As a powerful witness of the life-transforming power of the message of the Cross of Calvary, Thomas has preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans and from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes---and has seen the hand of God save and deliver in some of the most miraculous of situations.
Those who know Bro Thomas are well aware of his passion for Jesus and his gentle humility. Whether it is leading worship or while praying with a person at an altar or on the streets, his prayers are often soaked in tears as he "bears his brothers burdens" at the point of their need.
As a graduate of both the Dayspring Institute of Ministry & Biblical Studies and the Raven School of Evangelism, Thomas is a formidable apologist and stallwart for the Truth of God's Holy Word.
He and his wife, Doree, have three young children and currently work out of the Raven New Orleans region and plan to join Pastor Troy in Daytona Beach at the close of this assignment.
