Derrick Smith is a native of Spartanburg. Meghan, his wife, is a missionary kid from Ecuador. After they both graduated from seminary they moved back to South Carolina to begin church planting among international peoples in Spartanburg. Derrick is currently the church planting pastor of Kaleidoscope Multi-Ethnic Fellowship in Spartanburg. Kaleidoscope began 3 years ago with the purpose of ministering to under-reached people groups in a multi-ethnic setting. The church seeks to welcome, love and serve people with the goal of multiplying our group of believers. Kaleidoscope has offered English classes, works with international college students, and seeks to build authentic cross cultural relationships with the intention of Christ-like discipleship. During seminary they owned and operated Golden Apple Tutoring, a one-on-one math tutoring business. Derrick currently teaches AP Calculus full-time at Dorman and runs Upstate Test Prep teaching SAT classes throughout the year. They have 2 sons, Moses and Solomon, and another baby boy due this Christmas.
