Pastor Daniel and his wife Laura moved to Florida in 2011 from Olympia, Washington. They have 2 beautiful children and have served in ministry together since they married in 2003. Daniel grew up in Tacoma, Washington where his father pastored at Calvary Chapel of Tacoma. At 16 years old, Daniel heard God’s call in his life to repent from his sin and follow after Him. He began to study the Word of God for himself at that time and developed a love for teaching the Bible to his peers.
Daniel met his wife, Laura, in their church youth group during their senior year of high school. Daniel graduated from the University of Washington in 2004 with his business degree, but began working on staff at Calvary Chapel in Olympia, Washington soon after. Daniel remained on staff for 7 years as the high school youth pastor and worship pastor when God spoke to him and told him to move his family to Delray Beach, Florida to start a church. God was faithful to His promises to them, and in faith, they moved in August, 2011 to start Redemption Church Delray Beach.
Daniel has a heart for pointing people to Jesus and making disciples. He believes that God speaks through His Word and so he is passionate about teaching the Bible and seeing people’s lives transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
