71Five Mentors Coordinator

From the moment she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, she has whole-heartedly believed in God’s divine plan for her life. She trusts in the power of the Lord to lead her, especially when it comes to asking for guidance at major crossroads in life.

Prior to moving to Oregon, Darlene asked God for an opportunity where she could make better use of her education, experience, and skills. She asked God to use her to do His work to help others and glorify His name. Learning about Youth 71Five Ministries and the beautiful work done with at-risk youth brought tears from within. Coming from a challenging upbringing herself, Darlene’s heart immediately filled with eagerness to help. She could not imagine not being a part of such an amazing and loving organization. For Darlene, becoming part of Youth 71Five Ministries has been a true example of God showering His grace over her life and literally answering her prayers. As the Director of 71Five Mentors, Darlene’s goal is to build and support long-lasting relationships between mentors and kids. Her purpose is to share hope through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Darlene was married in the summer of 2022. Her and her husband Ben love to spend time together reading the Word, doing DIY projects, traveling, and being home relaxing with their dog “Mister” and cat “Nala”. Darlene loves her new blended family, animals, nature, and above all, our heavenly Father, God. Darlene’s favorite bible verse happens to be her “birthday verse” which fits in every aspect of her life: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. – Philippians 4:13.
