As a lad, he was introduced to spirituality at the Emmanuel Church of God in Christ where he participated in Sunshine Band, Sunday School and Y. P. W. W. (under the leadership of Bishop Felton King). He received his formal education from the Omega Head Start, Dunbar Elementary and Phoenix Union High schools before moving on to Leland Stanford Jr. University in Palo Alto, CA. At Stanford, Darrell excelled in music and participated as a three-year starter on the school’s Division I Football team. In his Junior year, however, he suffered a career ending spinal injury that left him paralyzed for a period of time. Following the tragic end to his hopes of a promising professional career, he received the LORD Jesus Christ as his Savior while visiting the Center of Hope Church in Oakland, CA (under the leadership of Evan. Ernestine Rheems). Following his conversion, he married Michele C. Sayers of Omaha, NE and received his B. A. degree in Sociology (Organizational Behavior) from Stanford. Shortly thereafter, he received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and a call to preach the Gospel of the LORD Jesus Christ. He began his public ministry at the Calvary Temple Church of God in Christ of East Palo Alto, CA under the leadership of Pastor Leon Turner, District Superintendent A. C. Macklin, and Jurisdictional Prelate, Bishop W. W. Hamilton. Later he was sent to Yuma, AZ where he served as an understudy to the late Pastor Henry Smith at the Powerhouse Church of God in Christ. While a member at Powerhouse, he was appointed the AZ Western District YPWW President by AZ State YPWW Pres. Elder J. S. Ellis. Next, he was sent to Parker, Arizona where he began to serve the Lily of the Valley Church of God in Christ (under the leadership of the late Pastor Willis Miller). The preacher was then appointed Pastor of the same by Bishop Felton King and has served in that capacity since. Elder Grissum currently serves as the Arizona State Sunday School Superintendent and First Assistant to the Western District Superintendent. He is the father of eleven children (8 boys and 3 girls) and Administrator of the Small Beginnings (Home school) Christian Academy. He is also employed as a Family Services/Community Partnership Specialist and the editor of the widely acclaimed monthly periodical, ‘The Lily of the Valley Newsletter’.
