About The Ministry
|On July 7, 2003, God birth in me an assignment to bless His people through early morning meditations by way of e-mails. Never did I imagine many years later, God would still pour more Word in me to share. From the first day the assignment was given to me, until now, I have kept the same promise to God: “As long as you keep speaking, I will keep typing and e-mailing. When you stop speaking, I will stop typing and e-mailing.” Beloved, as you read the meditations, it is my prayer that they will bless you.|
Pastor Darrick D. McGhee, Sr.
How then shall they call upon Him, whom they do not believe? How shall they believe upon Him, whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without a preacher? How shall they preach, unless they first be sent! (Romans 10:14)
Pastor Darrick D. McGhee, Sr. is a college graduate originally born in Peoria, Illinois. Born on November 16, to Darrie Faulkner and Constance McGhee- Faulkner. At the age of 10, Pastor McGhee’s family moved to Los Angeles, CA (May 21, 1988) where he grew up. Enjoying great success in High School, Pastor McGhee would later take those accomplishments with him to Tallahassee, FL where he would attend college: Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU). While in college, he would suffer great lost as his grandmother (Mary Dell McGhee – February 5, 1997); grandfather (Early McGhee – May 30, 1999); and his beloved Aunt (Mary Struthers – April 7, 2001) would each be called home to Glory. Although he experienced the pain of loss, it would be in college where he would also receive the Lord Jesus Christ into his life. On September 26, 1996, Pastor McGhee seriously began his Christian walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
On July 9, 1998, at the age of 20, Pastor McGhee said, “yes” to his calling to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ (his calling was confirmed by the Lord through II Timothy 4:1-3). On November 23, 1999, after preaching his initial sermon, “Are You Ready?” he was licensed under the powerful and anointed teaching of Pastor Stanley L. Walker, Sr. In February 2009, he was ordained an Elder by the same leadership. Since his day of making a covenant with the Lord, Pastor McGhee has been used by the Holy Spirit of God to teach seminars, preach at several revivals, prisons and conferences across the USA. On November 16, 2002, Pastor McGhee happily married his college sweetheart, Tikia McGhee (formerly Nelson). To their union was born a son, Darrick Dashawn McGhee, II, on November 28, 2005, and a daughter, Tania Lauren McGhee, on May 28, 2010.
Currently, Pastor McGhee, his wife and their children reside in Tallahassee, FL, where he is the pastor of Bible Based Church (www.bbctallahassee.com). Pastor McGhee lives his life according to Colossians 3:17 - And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.
