Pastoral Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip people for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.


Pastor Derek & Jennifer Boivin

Pastor Derek and Jennifer have been pastoring at Warren First Assembly since August 2012. Pastor Derek loves to preach and teach about God’s wonderful love for people. He is energized by hearing people laugh and encourage each other.
Pastor Derek earned his Master of Biblical Studies degree in 2015 from at Moody Theological Seminary and is currently enrolled in doctoral studies at Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. His goal is to present the Scriptures in a way that honors God and builds up the church and impacts people in positive ways, ultimately by sharing the hope Jesus gives. 
Pastor Derek’s guiding verse for ministry is Ezra 7:10, “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.”
In his spare time he loves to hang out at home with his family, meet friends for coffee, play cards and cheer for the Detroit Red Wings. He also serves the Ohio Ministries Network as the Dean of the Ohio School of Ministry.
He is fond of fountain pens, books, small kitchen appliances, Apple products, Tim Horton’s Coffee, cool gadgets and is always on the hunt for the perfect highlighter.
He has four wonderful children and He loves Jennifer more than anything on this earth.
