Daniel’s early years in a pastor’s home gave him opportunity for direct exposure to church and family ministry. He has been involved more directly as an adult in family and teen ministry since 2001 and international ministry since 2004. He worked on staff with a major non profit ministry organization in their home school, student, and administration departments for six and half years. Currently, Daniel is the Director of Operations for Vision4Living ministries. He has led missions’ teams for the last 10 years to Russia, Peru, Argentina, Columbia, Ecuador, and Mexico for Global Encounters (a short term international mission organization). Daniel has a heart for seeing the Church grow in the knowledge of the Gospel and has a heart for discipling others in the same. He has a passion for people seeing the Gospel as the all consuming center of life. He desires that his generation and younger carry the torch of the Gospel mantle. In addition to his interests in leadership development and ministry, Daniel enjoys coffee shops, sports, reading, studying, and spending time with his wife, Michelle. He is also a novice movie buff.
