Darrell Sydnor

Pastor Darrell L. Sydnor is Indy’s Hometown Hero. A retired Army Major, Pastor Sydnor is a humble servant who works hard to serve the entire community at large. As Pastor of The Rock Missionary Baptist Church he stays involved in the community. He hosts a weekly food pantry that provides food to needy families, a monthly clothes giveaway and cookout, and an annual children’s coat giveaway. Additionally, he ensures the church provides Thanksgiving baskets for families who would otherwise go without.

Most recently, Pastor Sydnor coordinated the annual Christmas giveaway where the church provides gifts of love to our City’s homeless. Pastor Sydnor can often be found visiting the sick in hospitals or nursing homes, volunteering at Miracles of Faith Daycare or Iocal schools, or playing basketball with the community’s youth. Pastor Sydnor is currently planning to build a community life center where he can further serve residents of Indianapolis and meet the needs of those on the Far Eastside. Notably, Mayor Greg Ballard recently recognized Pastor Sydnor for his community service efforts.

Pastor Darrell Sydnor, a humble servant, a caring and compassionate man is Indy’s Hometown Hero.
