Pastor / Elder
Daniel grew up in Pocatello, Idaho as the son of a pastor. After graduating from Highland High School, he studied at Moody Bible Institute (BA) and then The Master’s Seminary (MDiv). After seminary, Daniel, his wife Rachel, and their five children served in the Middle East for almost 10 years. They served within the local church, teaching and discipling, and Daniel served as a pastor during their final years. They also helped start a TMAI pastoral training institute through Grace Ministries International. Their family moved back to the States during the summer of 2021 when Daniel became the Senior Pastor at New Hope Baptist Church.
Daniel is passionate about the glory of Christ. He desires to see God exalted and the church purified through the preaching of the Word and discipleship. He wants to see the church unified as individuals grow together into a life of single-minded devotion to God so that the glory of God may be put on display before a watching world.
