Pastor Darrick Fullwood, Sr.
Pastor Darrick Fullwood, Sr., the founder and pastor of THE FAITH CHURCH is a man of faith, not just mustard seed faith but crazy faith. He has an anointing on his life to meet people where they are whether they are rich or poor, young or seasoned, skilled or unskilled, entrepreneur or ex-con. Pastor Fullwood has been groomed and called by God to minister to people from all walks of life and especially to those who have never met Christ.
Pastor Fullwood accepted the call to pastoral ministry and started his ministry in the living room of his home with 8 people, counting his family of 4. Because of his faith he continued to pursue from his home to a location that seated 500. Pastor Darrick declares, “ You ain’t seen nothing yet!” He is currently working on a church plant through the Church of God organization.
He is dedicated to outreach in our community and creating an environment that makes every person feel the love of God through his people. His vision is to build a ministry that will meet the needs of people in a holistic way: by faith, empowerment, health, finance, education and skill trades training. Pastor Fullwood’s ongoing initiatives include the Food Pantry which assists those in the community with a need on a monthly basis; an Annual Youth Conference where hundreds of youth in the community are awarded with backpacks filled with school supplies; a monthly Computer Give-A-Way which enables students to enhance their technological proficiency; and a monthly Food Distribution in partnership with Feeding America of Tampa where 400-500 needy families are given a box of groceries. He has also partnered with a local High School as a mentor for young men in a mentorship known as “Gentlemen’s Quest.” These programs support his endeavors to meet the people where they are and the vision set before him by God.
He holds a state of Florida building contractor’s license which he has had for 20 years, a Bachelors degree in Theology, a Masters Degree in Pastoral Ministry from Life Christian Universty, and is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry in Pastoral Ministry.
He is honored to be married 25 years to Angela Fullwood and together they have 3 children, Darrick, Jr., Angelique and Amber.
Pastor’s motto is “Out of every challenging situation there shall be a new birth of ‘The Faith’”.
