Darin was born and raised in Turner, Oregon on a flower (dahlia) farm with his two brothers. In the fall of 2009 Darin moved from Turner, Oregon to Moberly, MO to begin the adventure of Bible college at Central Christian College of the Bible. There he met his beautiful wife Becky and married her a few months later on July 17th, 2010. They began full-time ministry at Milan Christian Church in March of 2011. 

At Milan Christian Church, we believe the best way to see God glorified is through relationship as Christ’s family and going deeper in God’s Word together. “Where you are Family”, is a motto we use to help remind us we are all brothers and sisters in Christ who need new mercies every morning because we are imperfect people.

Darin says, “I love being a husband and father. I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing, boating, and sports. I am passionate about overseas missions as well as serving our community locally! God is a Global God and we should be a Global-minded people of God. I look forward to touching base with you if you have any questions or would like set up a time to chat. May God be with you!”

Paul Lu was born in Yangon, Myanmar on November 26th 1991.  He moved
to Lincoln, Illinois when he was just 3 with his family and later
moved to Wilmore, Kentucky when he was in middle school.  He spent
most of his childhood in America, but eventually went back home in
2003 where he stayed till he eventually graduated high school in 2010.
Hes got 3 sisters, the oldest has already graduated college and is
currently working in Australia.  The 1st youngest is currently
enrolled in Cincinnati Christian University and the youngest is
finishing high school.
When Paul eventually went to Central Christian College of the Bible,
it was never his goal to go into youth ministry.  His heart was set on
going back home and reaching the lost there.  But getting involved in
youth ministry at a nearby church opened up his eyes to how effective
he could be reaching out the youth.  So now Paul hopes to work closely
with Milan Christian Church not only to see a growth in numbers but a
growth in the spiritual lives of the children.  To make a change in
kids that will eventually change their lives and the others around
Some hobbies of Paul are long walks on the beach (jk), board games,
hiking, fishing (even though hes bad at it), biking and making videos.
