Minister Derell Eddings song writer of "GIVE ME JESUS" realized at the age of 13 that he had the gift to write: the gift to write songs, raps, poetry, prayers and stories. However, like many young Christian teenagers he was trying to live on both sides of the fence. He was trying to walk with Jesus and live for the world at the same time. As a result, many of his early writings were not truly reflective of his faith, nor were they truly reflective of what GOD had chosen him to do. At the age of 17 he made a conscious decision to completely give his life to GOD and accept Christ totally into his life.
At the age of 21 Derell began to study and became a licensed minister in the Church of GOD in Christ (C.O.G.I.C.).He has spent the last 9 yrs studying, being groomed by Church Elders, learning, nurturing his gifts, falling down and getting back up again. Derell has faced many obstacles: losing his mother, brother, grandmother, and best friend, and being homeless with a wife and three children to provide for all in a three year period. But all those struggles have taken him to where he is now: a published author and poet, a youth minister and mentor, a father and husband. It was well worth the trip.
