Our Staff
Derek Southern
Audio-Visual Producer

Derek Southern joined the staff of ORUMC in November of 2014. Derek is the Audio-Visual Producer. His primary role is the management of the audio visual ministry for the Crosswalk Contemporary Worship service.

I have been blessed to be able to work with ORUMC and help enhance worship using the sound, music, and technology within the Family Life Center. I feel honoured to work in such an amazing facility.

I have a BS in Operations Management and Information Systems from UNCG. I returned to UNCG in 2005 and earned my MBA. I currently work at Dynamic Quest in Greensboro, as a Customer Service Manager.

Being involved with the church community is my passion. I have served as the United Methodist Men president, served as a Sunday school teacher, Youth Group leader, served on various committees, and helped with the annual Brunswick stews and Community Day events. Here at ORUMC I have found myself being involved in more than just the responsibilities assigned to me. I have helped with Family Night events, Vacation Bible School, and extra-curricular events; such as weddings and meetings housed in the Family Life Center.

My wife, Jenny, and I have been married for 12 years. We have three children Emily, Ellie, and Erick. Emily is in 5th grade and Bethany Elementary in Rockingham County. Ellie is in 1st grade also at Bethany and is enrolled in the Spanish immersion program there. Erick is 3 ½ and loves any kind of heavy-duty equipment; such as tractors, bulldozers, and back-hoes! Both daughters are active in American Heritage Girls here at ORUMC, and Emily is a member of Route 456 as well. In my free time I enjoy farming, hunting, and spending time with my family.
