SPEC’s goals are to acquire resources for community outreach, enhancement, and to provide assistance to meet the needs of the people through prayer and service. Specifically, we look to make disciples for Christ who seek to cultivate a relationship with God and recognize and embrace their true identity in Him. We endeavor to equip believers for utilization within the Kingdom of Heaven for its advancement and expansion.
Derrick Maurice Snodgrass, Jr. is a charismatic leader, visionary, innovator, trailblazer, and a spiritual guide who serves as the senior and founding pastor of Spiritual Prosperity Enrichment Center (SPEC). SPEC was founded in the summer of 2015. Derrick has a heart and passion for people, and desires to spread and exemplify the love of God to humanity. Born and raised in the city of Indianapolis, believing charity begins at home, Derrick desires to make a difference within the city by being the hands and feet of God and shining the light of Jesus Christ. God birthed the vision to launch SPEC in Pastor Snodgrass at the tender age of sixteen as God awoke him at three o’clock in the morning and spoke the acronym (SPEC), the name (Spiritual Prosperity Enrichment Center), and the scripture ( 3 John 1:2) for which the church would be founded. His desire is to draw the unsaved and help lead them to a better life by being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, as well as empower believers. While the nature and character of God is unchanging, God often employs various methods to speak to His people.
Pastor Derrick truly believes God has given him a new perspective for the Kingdom. He maintains his stance on the infallible, unadulterated, and immutable word of God, yet he is radical, cutting edge, and liberating. His vision is to bridge the gap between two generations. Often vexed because of the lack of manifested power within the modern church, and the lack of knowledge within the former church, he hopes to bring a balance of intellectual stimulation and the manifested power of God. He prays that his ministry will be marked by the supernatural by way of signs, miracles, and wonders while keeping a humble and tender heart towards the Lord.
Pastor Derrick is known for precisely and holistically teaching and preaching the truth of God’s word, and for laboring in prayer and in the power of the Holy Ghost. Derrick has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Franklin University, and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Divinity from Liberty University. Derrick is married to his beautiful wife La Toija Shantel Snodgrass, and together, they have a two amazing children, Jackson Maurice Snodgrass and Khloe Shantel Snodgrass.
