Chozen Youth/Young Adult of the Month -- Darien Duncan
Darien Duncan was born on Oct 6, 1991 in Panama City, FL. He was raised by his mother, Theresa Curry, and his grandmother, Barbara Pope. Darien has two younger siblings. In 1998 Darian’s grandmother relocated to the northern Virginia area and he went with her.
Darien taught himself to play the keyboard as a youngster and has been playing ever since. He has also taught himself to play various instruments such as, the bass, the guitar, and the drums. Darien attended school in Prince William County and is a graduate of Battlefield High School.
His grandmother encouraged him to attend and participate in church, which led his life according to the gospel. He is currently a producer and musician. Darien plays for several gospel bands and well known gospel artists in the DC metropolitan area: Rob Mercer, Darrel Kelly, Bear Witness, Isaiah Thomas, Joshua Alfred and the list goes on. Darien enjoys worshipping through instrument and does so every Sunday playing keyboard at the Rock Christian Center in Falls Church, VA.
Darien’s favorite scripture is: Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
Darien is this month’s Chozen young adult because he is an excellent example of obedience to the Word of God. During my interview with Darien I questioned why he does not use his gifts and talents for the secular music industry. His comment to me and advice to young adults was: only what you do for Christ will last don't spend your time trying to advance yourself but spend it advancing the kingdom.

You are an inspiration to us all and God’s CHOZEN!!!
“Microphone check” is a weekly segment geared towards the youth and young adults to help them refocus their week and re-prioritize their lives making Christ the center of their thoughts, actions, and activities. Just as an MC checks his mic before laying down his lyrics, this is your opportunity to check your spiritual life as you walk out the door to real life…whether you are going to work, school, or running errands.
