Trinidad Missions

An extension of the ministries of New River is the mission work that is being established in Trinidad by Darren & Carla Talley.

Darren was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and lived his teen years in Greensburg, Louisiana. He gave his life to Christ at a summer youth camp when he was 14 and felt God’s calling to the Gospel Ministry. Carla grew up in Camilla, Georgia and gave her life to Christ at the age of 9. They both attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. It was there they met while doing youth ministry at a local church. Darren was subsequently ordained by his home church, First Baptist Church of Greensburg on March 13, 1988.

They graduated, married and moved to South Korea as missionaries to teens.

After 16 years of youth ministry spanning from Virginia to South Korea, Louisiana, Georgia and Arkansas, with two sons later, they planted a church near Raleigh, North Carolina. Darren pastored there for 16 years while Carla home schooled their two boys, Brandon and Dylan.

With both sons grown, they knew God was leading them back to the mission field. They asked God where He was leading them. Trinidad was the prompting of their heart. They knew nothing about that part of the world. Unsure about it, they asked God again. Once again, the prompting of their heart was Trinidad. Still doubtful, they asked God to make it very clear.

The very next Sunday, a guest came to church and mentioned she was from Trinidad. She was 'just visiting'.  Darren and Carla took her to lunch and asked many questions about Trinidad. After hearing about the needs of the people of Trinidad, God made it clear that this was indeed His leading.

Darren began taking mission teams to Trinidad to build relationships and see what doors God would open.

Carla returned with him on a later trip, and they began to network with local ministries there. After visits with former missionaries and local friendships, the Talleys decided to focus on discipleship ministry for the children and teens of Trinidad.

In addition to ministry, Darren enjoys teaching, praise music, hiking, and genealogy research. Carla enjoys crafts, singing, reading, teaching parents and sharing life with those she loves.
