Pastor Dan grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and has since lived in Williamsburg, Virginia, California, Oklahoma, Idaho, and most recently Omaha, Nebraska. His wife Charlotte and he have three children, Alexis, Micah, and Titus, who keep them very busy. They have two cats, whom Charlotte loves very much. Dan is active in marathons and triathlons (including two Ironman triathlons…so far). In addition to his work as a local pastor, Dan loves to teach theology for nursing students through Concordia University, Irvine, CA and to work with all kinds of youth gatherings (district, regional, national, even internationally in Finland and Denmark). He’s most passionate about revealing and reveling in the love of God in Christ Jesus. Bringing God’s Word to life for everyday people in everyday places is a passion that drives him. He’s constantly seeking opportunities to speak words of grace and life in every circumstance, in any venue, using whatever means God provides.
