Reach Out Center (ROC)

Pastor Daryl Russell

Pastor Daryl Russell was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  Street ministry has always been his passion. He and a few of his Christian friends would go to Hollywood Boulevard to street witness, preaching and sharing the good news of the kingdom, where hundreds of people received Jesus right there on the streets.  In 1984 Pastor Daryl moved to Pomona, CA. where he formally studied the scriptures at Shield of Faith Bible College.  He later became an Associate Pastor of the Lords Place Church in Diamond Bar, CA. Pastor Daryl continued his street ministry in Pomona, performing Teen Outreach and ministering to Hispanic gangs.

In 1994, Pastor Daryl moved to Stone Mountain, GA and immediately began finding the lost, serving as a Chaplin for the Dekalb County Jail, ministering at Rescue Atlanta and numerous other churches and venues.  Pastor Daryl met the second largest influence in his life and became married in April of 2008 to Mary.  Together, they grew in Christ.  However, it was not until 2009 - fifteen years after moving to Stone Mountain, that he met Pastor Bobby Atkins.  Pastor Daryl had been sharing the vision of a Reach Out Center with Pastors in the Stone Mountain area.  Pastor Bobby was the only pastor that invited him to have the Reach Out Center at his church.

Under the shepherding of Pastor Bobby, in 2012, Pastor Daryl became an ordained minister of the Gospel.  Along with his wife, Mary, Pastor Daryl leads the Reach Out Center (ROC) at TToP.  This powerful ministry reaches out to the community, finding the lost where they are and providing safe harbor for many.  Because of their awesome message and passion for the younger generation, the Reach Out Center also sponsors the Young Adult Ministry.
