Rev. Darian Hosch was born in 1973 in Gainesville, GA to the home of Rev. & Mrs. Gary Hosch. At the age of six the family moved to Warner Robins, GA to assume the pastorate of First United Pentecostal Church. It was at this early age that he became involved in the music ministry of FUPC. Soon he became an accomplished organist and singer and was a great blessing to his local assembly. On Fathers Day 1992 at the age of 18 he preached his first message. In November 1994 Darian married his beautiful wife, Leslie. They now have three wonderful daughters.

Bro. & Sis. Hosch have been priveldged to serve the Lord in fulltime ministry since 1998. They were honored to serve Pastor Timothy Copeland & First Pentecostal Church of Buford as Youth Pastor for 2 years. Following this they served as fulltime evangelist traveling much of the southeast until May of 2002. At that time they settled in south Lousiana as Assistant Pastor to Rev. A.L. Lyle and Calvary Pentecostal Church of Jeanerette.  From September 2005 until May of 2008 they returned to full time evangelism. It was during a lengthy revival at First UPC of DeQuincy that Pastor Wayne Cardwell invited the Hoschs' to become Assistant Pastor. The following 16 months was a wonderful experience and training ground for what would soon become their first pastorate.

In September 2009, Bro. Hosch received the call to come preach at New Life Apostolic Church (Formely Ball Apostolic Church.) Due to the declining health of Pastor Carl Francois he felt it was time to transition the pastorate to someone else. On September 23, 2009 the transition service was held and a new era began in the lives of the Hosch family. We anticipate great things as God continues to bless NLAC.
