Daniel grew up in central California and Portland, Oregon. During his rebellious young adult years, Jesus Christ enlisted him in a radical way into his godly service. Now Daniel is sold out for Jesus’s love! Shortly after Daniel’s conversion, God took him to Mexicali, Mexico, where he served at Calvary Chapel Mexicali for five years. It was like a spiritual boot-camp for Daniel, with all the blessings and challenges that come with foreign ministry.
Daniel meet his wife Nancy while serving in Mexico. After they were married, the Lord led Daniel and Nancy to Calvary Chapel Gresham, Oregon, were they directed the children’s ministry. Being compelled by the Holy Spirit to move on, they found themselves at the doors of Crossroads Community Church. God called Daniel and his family to this beautiful campus where they can serve as a family and grow in their faith.
When Daniel is not ministering to the Emerging Generation, he enjoys the outdoors, learning about history, gardening, and spending time with his family. God has given Daniel and Nancy three beautiful daughters.
