The SMDM Story

Derik Lawrence has been in the Gospel ministry full time since 2004, serving in many capacities from Children's Ministry Pastor, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor and currently serving as a Senior Pastor.  He's an avid duck hunter and sensed the Lord directing him to merge his two passions together in order to reach for more souls for Christ.  In 2020, he presented for the first time with Mya, a two year old British Labrador Retriever.  It wasn't till a year later that he formed Send Me Dog Ministries.  SMDM not only presents in churches, but also in men's fellowships, wild game dinners, FCA huddles, special needs venues, camps, school chapels, civic events, sporting events, etc.  Each venue will be tailored to fit your specific application and audience.  Feel free to contact SMDM concerning your needs!



Send Me Dog Ministries was founded for the purpose of using dogs as teaching instruments while preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as to instill character, leadership and patriotism in our local communities.



Isaiah 6:8 "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."

Send Me Dog Ministries is based on Isaiah 6:8.  I realize that the Lord has indeed asked,  "who will go for us?"  I have answered that call...send me!  

My vision is to "send my dogs" wherever the Lord sends me!
