Darrell Roberts currently serves as the Senior Pastor for Living Water Christian Fellowship/Harvest House, which Tommy Gable founded in 1977. Darrell is also the Executive Director for Harvest Equippers. Darrell and his wife Kim live and minister in Boone, N.C. with and their three adult children. In 1988, Darrell was ordained as a Pastor at Living Water Christian Fellowship in Boone, North Carolina. During that time, he and his Kim started New Life Ministries, a campus ministry at Appalachian State University. Since then, they have ministered the love and reality of Christ to thousands of university students at Appalachian State and other universities.
In 1994, while leading a mission team in Romania, Darrell and Kim received a calling from the Lord to train, equip and send workers into the unreached Harvest fields. In obedience to this burden, they returned to the United States where they began Harvest Equippers, based on the prayer of Jesus. (Matthew 9:36-37) Since then, Harvest Equippers has ministered in 17 different nations, equipping and establishing long-term missionaries, starting and supporting churches, running short-term mission projects and seeing well over 100,000 people make commitments to Christ. Kim has dedicated her life to her family and by ministering to the next generation of “harvesters.” This was accomplished by coordinating mission outreaches to children that have brought thousands of kids into the Kingdom, serving as a second grade teacher, in the Boone community, and as the Executive Director of the annual “Harvest Camp” in the Boone community.
Throughout the last 27 years of ministry, Living Water and Harvest Equippers have empowered and sent missionaries to spread the gospel both here and abroad.
