Student ministry workers Darrel and Kimberly Hathcock have three daughters, Arianna, Abigail, and Sophia. Darrel was born in Amory, Mississippi, and is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Kimberly was born in Big Rapids, Michigan, and is a graduate of Missouri Baptist University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
During seminary, Kimberly and Darrel were parts of separate evangelism ministries in New Orleans' French Quarter. That is where they met in March of 2003. This experience continued to remind both Darrel and Kimberly of God's desire to reach the nations, and on June 4, 1994, the couple married. Before serving with the IMB, Darrel served as a campus minister with Baptist Student Ministries in Carthage, Texas, and in Springfield, Missouri.
The Hathcocks have served with the IMB since April 2002, first in the country of Belarus, followed by a second term in the country of Ukraine. They have now joined the Eastern Hungary team, having moved to Hungary in June of 2011. Following a year of intensive language study in Budapest, the family relocated to Debrecen in August of 2012, where they focus on student ministries. Please pray for the Hathcocks as they continue the process of following Him and seeking His Kingdom.
