Bishop Darrell L. Hines is a man of vision, purpose, and prayer. His primary mission is to fulfill the call of God on his life, which is to proclaim the uncompromising Word of God. He is equally a faithful husband to Pamela, loving father to his two adult sons, Darrell II and Brandon, and proud grandfather of four. In 1981 Darrell died after being struck by lightning while working for Republic Airlines in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he was revived 45 minutes later, physicians concluded he would live life in a vegetated state. But God had another plan. After overcoming amnesia, Bishop Hines made a commitment to God, to "…Take care of God’s business, while God takes care of his…" Since then, he has been telling a dying world about a living Christ while winning scores of souls. Bishop Hines pastors Christian Faith Fellowship Church of God in Christ (CFFC), one of the largest African American churches within the state of Wisconsin, with his wife Pamela. CFFC was founded with a four-point plan called CORE: Community, Outreach, Resource and Education; and a purpose to proclaim the Word of God, uplift the family and provide ministry to the total man. CFFC is comprised of over 130,000 square feet, across two campuses. This includes Destiny Youth Plaza (DYP), a state of the art multifunctional youth, family, and community facility. CFFC is also home to Darrell Lynn Hines Academy, Destiny High School, the Destiny Plaza Branch of the Boys and Girls Club of Milwaukee, and under a partnership with Froedert Hospital of Wisconsin, DYP houses The Froedert Good Hope Medical Center.
