Derek Atkinson

Lead Pastor

Pastor Derek and Holly moved to Spring Hill in July of 2013. They have come to us from Lawrence, Kansas where Derek served as College, Missions and Worship Pastor, and Holly served as the Chidlren’s Director. Derek is originally from San Diego, California where he grew up as a pastor’s kid. His family moved all over, living in California, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Indiana. Derek attended Oklahoma Wesleyan University where he received his bachelors degree in Pastoral/Youth ministry. From college, Derek transitioned to seminary life in Jackson, Mississippi where he received his Masters at Wesley Biblical Seminary. Derek was ordained in Kansas in 2009.

After graduation from Seminary, Derek married Holly. They have been married 8 years. Derek also has a heart for reaching people around the world. He and Holly served as missionaries in Manaus, Brazil for a year in 2007-08. They have two beautiful daughters. Derek couldn’t be more in love with his wife and daughters.

Derek enjoys golfing, softball, mowing his lawn in a meticulous manner, watching football with his friends, kayaking, days at the beach, happy hour at Sonic, and spending time with Holly and their girls.
