Pastor Dan, a native Floridian, has family roots that run deep in our South Florida community. He was raised in Dania Beach and is a graduate of South Broward High School and FAU. He attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, in the 1980’s. It was here that he met his wife-to-be, April, who was attending nearby Texas Christian University. They were married and moved to South Florida shortly thereafter. Dan began work as a lay minister in their local church and gained extensive experience in leading home groups, teaching Bible studies, and overseeing various ministries. He is an ordained minister and has been the pastor of Church in the Glades since its inception in 2003.
Dan and April have been married for over 25 years and have four children and three grandchildren. They have a keen insight into the struggles and joys that young families face today and understand the tremendous blessings that come with living a life dedicated to following the Lord.
