Pastor Daniel then was called as Youth Pastor at Oakdale Baptist Church in Statesville, NC where he served for over three years.
Pastor Daniel attended Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Olin, NC for 18 years . He credits the love, wisdom, and knowledge passed down from the loving people there as part of the reason that he is in Pastoral Ministry today. Pastor Daniel is working on a B.A. in Biblical Studies at Piedmont International University and hopes to be finished with his degree in December of 2019.
Pastor Daniel and his wife Kelli have been married since April 12, 2014. They both have been involved in ministry for over 13 years at their respective churches. They both have a passion for God’s Word and for truth. They enjoy working with people of all ages, and teaching them how to become disciples for Jesus!
“I am so honored to be serving the Lord as the Pastor of FBC Davis. I do not take my role here lightly. With much prayer, study in God’s Word, and leaning on His power, I hope to lead our church to be loving risk takers in the faith; loving those who might not love us and doing good to those that would hurt us. I hope to lead our church to be the radical disciples of Jesus that we are called to be. I pray that our church in Davis impacts the world around us for Christ and that we multiply disciples Down East.”
