In January 2011, Derrick and his wife Paika moved from New York City to Hong Kong. Through some recommendations from friends in the US, they found themselves at Island ECC on their first Sunday and have called this church home ever since.
While there have been many changes in their family over the past several years, including career transitions and celebrating the birth of their first child, God’s faithfulness and the community at Island ECC have been constants. As part of this community, Paika and Derrick facilitate the CG 2:42 care group. In addition, Derrick helps lead Men’s Fraternity and has been participating in the Pure Desire ministry for the last few years.
As a big fan of sports, food and fitness, you can often find him watching a game, eating or working out (oddly enough, sometimes all at the same time).
