Hello, my name is Derick Buggs. I was born in Germany and stayed there until I was eight years old; we relocated to South Bend, IN. where I lived until I relocated to North Carolina in October 2018. I've been married for 25 years and we have three daughters and one son. We also have three grandchildren!
I have received an Associate in Arts Degree, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Bible/Ministry, and a Masters in Ministry from Bethel University in Mishawaka, In. (NAIA school). I've recently graduated from Liberty University with a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy.
My Life Motto is that "Nobody is perfect, and Nobody will ever get to perfect. It is much more important to measure ourselves by whether we are growing in the right direction, not whether we have gotten there. Folks who try to be perfect tend to get anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed when they can't make it. People who recognize that life is about the journey tend to be much more satisfied with their accomplishments and their lives" (Raffi Bilek).
My interest is in watching sports, traveling, spending time with family, and I'm also an active member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, INC.
