Pastor Daniel was called to First Baptist Church of Gallatin beginning in January, 2020. He completed his M.Div. degree at Southern Seminary in December of 2012, and then served in two churches in California. He was ordained as pastor of Murrieta Valley Church (SBC) in California in 2017 where he served alongside two other pastors until he was called to pastor FBC Gallatin in 2020. He is a certified biblical counselor (since 2022) with ACBC (Association of Certified Biblical Counselors) and loves to minister the Word both in public teaching and preaching, and also personally in counseling and discipleship ministry as well (see Acts 20:20).
Daniel is a Chargers fan now in Chiefs country just trying to keep at least some of his kids from becoming full blown KC Chiefs fans.... He and his wife, Stacy, are the parents of six children–Moriah, Bellah, Anna, Jeremiah, Micah, and Noah. They enjoy creating memories together in the day-to-day adventures of life as a family of eight.
