Darnell Uhland

After School Care Coordinator | RYP Camp Director

Darnell grew up in Chico California before moving to San Diego to attend UCSD in 2002. While at UCSD, he received a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Communication. Being from Northern California, he is a big fan of the Sacramento Kings, Oakland A’s, and Oakland Raiders (Please don’t hold that against him).

Darnell gave his life to the Lord when he was 16 while attending a Christian theatrical play. It was at there that he realized that being a nice guy isn’t enough for eternal life, but that he needed Christ. From that day, Joshua 1:9 has always been a verse that he has held close to his heart. (Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.)

Darnell and his wife, Nicole, have two children, Quentin and Jayde, who are attending The Rock Academy. The Uhland household are big on unity as they all like the same sports teams.

Darnell previously worked at Horizon Christian Academy from 2007-2017. At different times, he coached football, baseball, basketball, and soccer at the Jr. High and High School levels. He taught PE, Freshman Bible, and subbed for an Algebra 2/Pre-Calculus class. He was the Jr. High Athletic Director from 2009-2013 and the After School/Seasonal Camp Director from 2013-2017.

In his spare time, Darnell enjoys watching his kids play sports, going on dates with his wife, mini golfing, and eating California Surfin burritos from Lucha Libre.
