Derrick Smith - Youth Pastor

How did you find yourself at Arbor?


Carrilee and I became members in 2011. (I believe this is right you probably need to check the membership card for the date) We were fairly new to the Fitzgerald area and tried several local churches but none of them made us feel at home like Arbor. The people at Arbor have always been so kind and supportive and there is not a better place to be. I later took a job as the youth pastor at Central United Methodist church before becoming the youth pastor at Arbor in 2013.
