Born and raised in Wisconsin, Dan is a product of his own faith journey and has a passion to help people experience what it took him too long to discover: a real, raw and relational walk with Jesus. It was when God intersected with Dan in this way that his path changed and he began pursuing ministry.
Dan has served as a pastor for over 18 years in a variety of capacities: from working in a larger congregation helping start a second campus to launching a new church plant with a small core of people. Most recently, he served as pastor of Mission and Discipleship for Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran in Pewaukee, WI.
In every context of ministry, Dan has a passion to translate the Gospel in tangible ways so that every person can meet and embrace the love of Jesus. He loves walking the path of discipleship alongside others who are discovering a new identity and purpose for their lives. In all things, Dan longs to help people experience the grace and truth of God in real ways that touch down in their lives.
He lives this mission out with his teammate and bride of over 20 years, along with their 4 teenage children who love Jesus and serve the Lord right alongside mom and dad. In his spare time, Dan loves all things Wisconsin: the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, hunting, fishing, restoring old cars, sports – Packers, brats, and cheese curds!
