Darby grew up in McKinney and then went to Arkansas to go to college at Ouachita Baptist University. She graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies in December of 2021 and continued working at a church in Little Rock as the Community Engagement Associate.
She moved back to the area in the summer of 2022 to work at a local church, started at The 25 Project in October, and began pursuing her degree in Intercultural Studies from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Darby felt the Lord calling her into ministry her Junior year of high school, and then in her first year of college, she clearly felt it was supposed to be in missions. She went on many mission trips throughout youth group and then spent the summer of 2019 in Zambia, Africa. She feels a passion for the lost and broken people who don’t live in a place where they hear the name of Jesus.
