Darin and his band Mission 5:16 want to bring the light of the Lord to the World!

In the sixth grade Darin was introduced to drums, when he began playing percussion in the school band. It did not take long for him to fall in love with the drum kit. Around the same time Darin became a Christian and he found that he could praise the Lord through playing the drums. While a teenager he played drums in the high school marching band, jazz band, and show choir. Along with other youth in his church he started a praise band. In college he continued to play drums in the college marching band.

As Darin grew into adulthood, he continued to improve his drumming by using his gift of drumming every chance he got at church. Eventually he was playing weekly in the church praise band as well as for special events and any other chance he had to drum for the Lord. In 2007 Darin joined Wade and Kyle in the Christian rock band Mission 5:16. Since that time Darin and Mission 5:16 have continued to grow in their mission to reach the lost for Christ through music. They play for churches, youth events, summer camps, community events, amusement parks, and festivals. Darin has shared the stage with many great Christian artists including: Fee, Down Here, Caleb Rowden, Big Daddy Weave, Beautiful Republic, December Radio and many more.
