Autumn Hope Darden has been ministering for over 25 years as a worship leader, Bible teacher and conference speaker. Her journey to ministry began when she experienced the life changing power of Jesus as a young teen. Before that, Autumn grew up in a Christian professing home that was filled with neglect, secrets and chaos. By age 13 Autumn was pregnant and living in a home for pregnant teens. The secret was out! What had been going on most of Autumn’s childhood was now in the light. Autumn placed the baby for adoption and came home to the crushing weight of guilt, shame, depression and thoughts of suicide. However, one thought changed everything, “If I can just get to church. I think God will help me.” A few weeks later a parent dropped her off at a little country church and the rest is history! Through forgiveness, loving pastors and God’s transforming power Autumn’s life was turned right-side-up and she has never been the same.
Autumn currently lives in the Nashville area with her husband, Kiley and their four children. They enjoy finding waterfalls, camping, swimming and watching movies together.
