2.     Caring for the Disciple: Deacons as Care-Givers Rev. Darrell L. Armstrong – Senior Pastor, Shiloh Baptist Church of Trenton

The needs of a congregational family are ever expanding and the duties of Deacons as Care Givers to the people remain extremely important for a healthy church.  This important topic has brought our attention to assist in training and awareness of what church leaders are and can do today.
Rev. Darrell L. Armstrong

The Rev. Darrell L. Armstrong is a native of South (Central) Los Angeles, California where he was born and raised. The Rev. Armstrong is in his 12th year of service as the pastor of the historic Shiloh Baptist Church of Trenton, NJ. Shiloh is a thriving community of faith rooted in a worship tradition which represents the richness of the African diaspora. He is only the church's third pastor in the last 108 years!

His policy training at Stanford University (BA in Public Policy), theological training at Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and therapeutic/clinical training at The College of New Jersey (Ed.S. in marriage & family therapy) have uniquely prepared the Rev. Armstrong to be a respected voice in the national and international child welfare/family strengthening communities, foster and kinship care. Rev. Armstrong previously served as the Director of the Division of (Child Abuse) Prevention and Community Partnerships (DPCP) for the NJ Department of Children and Families.

He is the author of two books.  He is married to the former Melanie L. Pinkney, Esq., who is the Executive Director of the Division of Civil Rights and Affirmative Action for the NJ-Department of Transportation. They are the proud parents of Amaris Kayla (7-years) and Daniel LaRue (5-years)
