Pastor of Teaching, Elder • email@example.com
A California native, Dan has a bachelor’s in Biblical Studies from
The Master’s College, and a Master of Divinity from Multnomah Biblical Seminary. He has been on staff at LBF as the Pastor of Teaching since 2011. Married to Karina, they have three young boys – Matthew, Jack, and David. Besides his family, Dan is also passionate about seeing people overcome significant obstacles and embrace Jesus to find his calling for their lives. His favorite pastimes include reading, watching movies, playing tennis, riding his bike, and watching baseball and basketball. Although he has an excellent memory for facts and figures, he can’t remember things like what his family was wearing yesterday. In short, he would be a nightmare for a police sketch artist.
