BIRTHDAY

What I love about dAYOne IS THAT THE CAMARADERIE BETWEEN SINGERS IS AMAZING. iT'S ALWAYS MORE FUN BEING PART OF A GROUP THAN BEING ON YOUR OWN.

Darin Scott was born in Anderson, SC and raised in Toledo, OH. where his parents pastor The Church on Strayer with campuses in Maumee, Northwood, and Fremont Ohio.   He went to Lee University and graduated with a communications and Bible degree while being actively involved in the various music ministry opportunities offered by the school.  It was his time at Lee that prepared him for what he would eventually do……create and launch DayOne Music Ministries in 1990.  Darin has been privileged to travel to 48 of the 50 states (Still hoping to visit Wyoming and Alaska) as well as more than 20 countries around the world.  

As the leader of DayOne Music Ministries, Darin has had hundreds of singers and musicians from around the US and Canada help mold DayOne into what it is today.  Some of those singers and musicians have gone on to play and sing with some of the top acts in both the Christian and Secular music industry winning both Dove Awards and Grammy Awards.  One of the highlights of Darin’s journey with DayOne was visiting Australia and New Zealand multiple times with the band to perform and minister.  It was on one of these trips that he met his wife Bronwyn and in addition his sister met her husband while helping the band with CD sales in New Zealand.  Another favorite are the Hawaiian Islands as the group has ministered and traveled to the islands dozens of times over the past 27 years.  It was in Hawaii where Darin was married in March 2001.

Darin is an active sports fan especially ice hockey where he grew up playing in NW Ohio for an all-star travel team that traveled throughout the US and Canada.  He continues to play ice hockey in an adult league in Nashville.  While his dream was to one day play in the National Hockey League he eventually settled on his second favorite….basketball where he was a three year starter in high school.  Darin is married to Bronwyn and they have two daughters Bella (13) and Abbie (9).  They reside in Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville.
