Brother, minister, son, praise and worship leader, and intercessor. These roles only scratch the surface when it comes to Pastor D. Jakolby Washington, lead vocalist on the Freedom to Worship album, and the visionary behind JudahLYFE Ministries. Known to everyone as Derrick, and confident in God to identify himself as a worshiper, Pastor Washington has a mind to lead and a heart to serve God’s people. The Florida- native says that he grew up as a “drug baby.” His grandmother didn’t take him to church—she drug him to church. Even still, his upbringing has shaped him into the man he is today: a man with an unapologetic faith, a passion for the preached word, and overall radical pursuit of God’s heart in worship.
