Pastor Darrin Baldwin
Three words that describe you best: Inward, communicator, and positive
What are your favorite hobbies? Music -- playing and listening to it. Every kind of music speaks to me. I also like art -- even though I don't own much of it. I love food! Eating it and cooking it. I am so intrigued by the endless ingredients that are in this world. I would love to go to a cooking school of some kind. I like to travel. There is something so appealing to me about being in an airport getting ready to go somewhere new or loading up the car to drive somewhere we've never been. I also like people-watching. I am always enthralled by people's behaviors, personalities, and mannerisms. I can sit in a mall and watch 10,000 people go by and never get bored.
