Dan grew up in a Christian home and surrendered his life to the Lord at the age of 8. After earning an undergraduate degree in Economics and Business Management from The College of William and Mary, Dan continued his education, obtaining a master's degree in Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary while serving for 8 years in various roles on staff at a church in Maryland, his latest role being the Associate Pastor of Missions and Outreach. During this time God grew in Dan a passion to glorify God through the multiplication of disciples worldwide, and to see the Gospel spread through God's most effective plan for evangelism: church planting. In 2014, Dan joined Harvest Bible Fellowship, training for 4 months in the Harvest Bible Chapel Training Center under the leadership of Pastor James MacDonald in Chicago, IL, in preparation to plant Harvest Bible Chapel in the greater Annapolis area. Dan enjoys adventures with his family, sports, reading books on theology and ministry, and spending time with friends. Dan and Ann were married in 2004 and have four children (Amanda, Caroline, Isaiah, and Ethan).
