Upwards Church is a bible based and Christ focused church meeting in three locations across Williamson County: Leander, Jarrell and Taylor, TX.   We  don’t take ourselves too seriously but do our best to try to take Jesus and His words in that way.   For Sundays, we dress casual and have inspiring live music.  We also use video and relevant teaching from the Bible.  Our messages are intended help us live God-honoring lives.  We care about reaching and helping hurting people and improving the communities as well as the world we live in.

Before planting Upwards Church in 2000,  Darrell was the pastor at a church in Eagle Pass, TX and a youth pastor in San Antonio.  He and Niki have been married since 1995 and have three children.  Darrell has a Bachelor of Science from Texas A &M University and a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.
