Derby has completed five (out of ten available) Renaissance Modules: Philosophy of Religious Education, Teacher Development, Curriculum Planning, Ministry with Youth, and Administration as Leadership. Renaissance Modules are 15-hour trainings for religious professionals offered by the UUA.

One of Derby’s biggest passions is the Our Whole Lives (OWL) program of age-appropriate, comprehensive human sexuality education developed jointly by the UUA and the United Church of Christ. He is certified to facilitate (i.e., teach) OWL at the following levels: Kindergarten-1st grade, 4th-6th grade, 7th-9th grade, and 10th-12th grade. Derby has also been certified to train OWL facilitators at the 7th-9th grade and 10th-12th grade levels.

Derby grew up unchurched in Buena Park, California. He and his wife were looking for a church community when they discovered UUFRC in 2003. They became members in 2004.
