After years of ministry in Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee, Pastor Deron’s journey has brought him home to central Kentucky, where his family roots run deep. His grandparents grew up on opposite sides of the Kentucky River; his grandmother on the Madison County side and his grandfather in Jessamine County. He received his Master of Divinity from Mid America Baptist Theological Seminary and his Doctorate from Covington Theological Seminary. His wife, Bonita is an Educational Therapist and a pastor’s daughter. They have a daughter, Joanna, and two sons, Joshua and Joseph. Pastor Deron enjoys reading, sports, and spending time with his family.

“My passion is preaching and teaching God’s Word. My purpose in life is to radically love God, evangelize the lost, and equip the saved through the power of the gospel. The gospel brings joy, fulfillment, and purpose to every life it changes. I am so grateful and humbled that a Holy and Righteous God was willing to forgive, call, and now entrust to me the stewardship of one of His beloved churches here in Richmond, Kentucky. I truly feel like I have come home and I am excited about what God has in store, not only for me and my family, but for the whole Red House Baptist Church family.”
