Daniel was the first staff person to commit to the Church of the Beloved network. He graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and is currently completing his Master’s degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL. Daniel has ministered to youth, college, and young adults in Virginia, California, Florida, and now Chicago. He has a heart for shepherding, sharing the gospel, and worshiping with his congregation. In October 2015, Daniel moved from the role of Interim Lead Pastor to Lead Pastor, and he is excited to see what God has in store for the church. Daniel married his wife, Kate, in September 2015. Together they enjoy spending time with friends, traveling to visit family, finding good Chicago restaurants, and beating each other in card games. Please pray that God will continue to strengthen their marriage as they serve the church together.
