Growing up in Davidsonville United Methodist Church, he knew from early childhood that he would likely be a pastor. What he didn't know until high school was that he was also destined for the theater.
Last year, Durbin was assigned as Senior Pastor at Centenary UMC in Shady Side. Here he has begun a new chapter in his theater career, founding the Shady Side Theater at the church. He has already produced two plays and this weekend will present "Where Your Treasure Is,' a play he wrote. The cast of 24 includes small children up to senior citizens, all local talent. The show revolves around a chaotic family Thanksgiving dinner and includes a little mystery and a lot of fun.
