Daryl Smith


Having grown up with a love for music, Daryl wanted to learn to play to guitar as a kid simply because he wanted to play in church. A few decades later, that hasn’t changed. His passion for worship ministry led him to various churches and leadership roles over the years, until he met the love of his life (our own Kids’ Ministry Director, Jamie Smith), started a family and found his church home at Ambassador where he now serves as Worship Director.

Daryl graduated from Biola University with a B.A. in Communications and spent ten years working in marketing for Evangelical Christian Credit Union until September 2014 when he stepped down in order to be a full-time parent. These days he splits his time between his family and worship ministry, which is pretty much his dream situation.
