Daniel was born in Springfield, MO, in 1984. He is one of seven children, and his father was a pastor. At an early age he came to know the Lord, and he was discipled by his parents at home. In his late teens the Lord really began to move in his life and open his eyes to many truths of Scripture. While at the Baptist College of Florida Daniel met his wife, Lydia. He graduated in 2006 with a B.A. in Theology. Shortly after graduation he and Lydia were married. God has blessed them with nine wonderful children, Michael, Hannah, Charis, Joanna, Nathan, Luke, Joshua, Charity, and Andrew.
Daniel began in the ministry in 2003 by volunteering to teach the Bible in a local juvenile detention center. In 2004 he was called to serve as Assistant/Youth Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Esto, FL. He served there until 2008 when he was called to be the Pastor of Antioch. Daniel’s passions for ministry are prayer, expository preaching, mentoring young men, and family discipleship.
