Derrick Strickland

Marked by an insatiable hunger for God and His Word, our Pastor loves sharing that passion with us here at First Church of the Open Bible. Confident in God’s power to save, transform, heal and empower; He loves helping others experience it for themselves. You’ll find in him an experienced teacher, evangelist and Pastor with a genuine desire to see revival come to Freeport and the surrounding areas.

Alongside Pastor, you’ll find his wonderful wife, Michele. A true gift to him and to our congregation. A sincere love for others and for Freeport. She never meets a stranger and loves welcoming newcomers to our church.
