A youth ministry major at Spring Arbor University, Dan is passionate for young adults to have a place and a chance to feel welcomed. He loves road biking and anything outdoors, the Detroit Red Wings, and laughing with others over a good cup of coffee. His wife Mary is from a small, Northern Indiana town called Culver, and grew up loving theatre and music. Dan and she in their first year at Asbury Theological Seminary, and they were married in June 2015.
