Meet Our Team

Daryl Wattley

Daryl Wattley

Campus Minister

Rev. Daryl Wattley Jr. is a native of Atlanta. He became a believer in Jesus while in College at Georgia Southern University. After graduating, he attended Reformed Theological Seminary Atlanta where he was the first African-American to graduate with a Masters in Divinity. He moved to Delaware in 2014 to start a chapter of Reformed University Fellowship at Delaware State University, a Historically Black College, with the goal of building a multi-cultural ministry to nurture new and young believers, raise disciples and develop future church leaders through God's Word and Spirit. Soon after, he became the first African-American to be ordained in the Heritage Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America. Daryl loves Jesus and his lovely wife Laria. In his spare time, he enjoys technology, Atlanta sports, nature, sci-fi movies, music and photography.

Braxton Berkel


Braxton Berkel is from Louisiana but grew up mostly in Virginia. He graduated from James Madison University (ROLL DUKES!) with a B.S. in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science & a Religious Studies Minor. While at JMU Braxton was an active member of a Pre-Professional Fraternity, Intramural sports, Club Rugby (only for like 2 weeks), and this other awesome group called Reformed University Fellowship. After spending most of his time with RUF Braxton decided he didn't want to leave yet which brings us here. RUF has been a huge part of the foundation of spiritual growth for Braxton. He was given a faithful community where he could not only be served but also serve alongside Christians at JMU. While continuing his time with RUF Braxton is praying for a community that loves the gospel and will grow with him at DSU. With the love shown to him at JMU Braxton plans to share that same awesome experience with students at DSU.

Braxton absolutely loves hanging out with people so in his free time he spends more time hanging out with people. He especially enjoys spending time with his fiancé, playing/watching soccer, going to the gym and is always down to have fun. He also enjoys listening to people as much as he likes talking to people. God made all his children special and Braxton will always want to hear about other people's experiences. He is STOKED to see what's going on at Delaware State University!
