Darlene Zschech (born September 8, 1966 in Sydney, Australia) is an Australian Charismatic/Pentecostal worship leader and singer-songwriter who primarily writes praise songs.
Zschech is the worship pastor of Hillsong Church, in Sydney, Australia (an Assemblies of God church), taking over from Geoff Bullock. As worship pastor, she oversees the Worship & Creative Arts Department at Hillsong Church at the Hills and City congregations. Darlene leads worship most weeks for the Hillsong Television programme (the official website says that the programme reaches 125 countries around the globe). Hillsong made global headlines when their 2004 live CD release, For All You've Done reached number one in the Australian secular music charts.
Zschech was a child star of an Australian television series titled Happy Go 'Round. She was traumatised at 13 when her parents divorced and a custody battle ensued. At 14, Zschech suffered from bulimia.
A year later, as a young adult, she sang jingles for a number of international companies including McDonald?'s, KFC and Diet Coke.
