Pastor Daniel was brought on part-time in 2010. He has continuously added more and more to his role. He started as worship leader and has added media, youth, and preaching team to his job description. Pastor Daniel is really good at dreaming, sermon preparation, and troubleshooting. He and his wife, Rachel, have two beautiful girls, Rosalie and Florence. They also have a dog named Mercy. Pastor Daniel is a gamer, although he typically only plays a couple games. He often photographs weddings on Fridays and Saturdays. He really is a jack of all trades, except for tradecrafts. Give him a musical instrument or an electronic device and he will figure it out. Give him a hammer and you'll quickly find out why Rachel is the handyman of the house.
