Founder & Overseer
Daniel was born and raised on the border of Maryland and Pennsylvania in a God-fearing family. Daniel was exposed at a young age to the power of the Holy Spirit and chose to accept Jesus at 9 years old. Throughout his childhood he had the privilege of seeing many different revivalists and generals of the faith as he traveled with his family up and down the East Coast. As he witnessed different moves of God in all the meetings that he attended, he quickly desired to see a fresh move in his own life that would affect the world around him. When he was 14 years old, he went on his first missions trip to Bolivia, a trip that marked his life forever and awakened a passion in his heart for missions.
From that time on he began going on missions trips every year, traveling worldwide and experiencing everything from smuggling Bibles into countries that persecuted Christians to preaching the gospel to large crowds to seeing the sick healed and the oppressed set free, all through the grace of Jesus Christ. These experiences eventually culminated into him organizing and leading his first team to Peru at age 22.
During his late teens and early 20’s, Daniel was a youth and young adult leader at his home church in Pennsylvania. At the same time he started a job as a mental health worker, unknowingly receiving a healthy amount of training in assisting young people who were struggling with mild mental disorders.
Afterwards, Daniel moved to Alabama and attended a ministry school for one year. Following graduation, he moved to Redding, California in 2006 to complete Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry’s three-year program, graduating in 2009. Daniel has traveled to over 50 countries in his life preaching the Gospel and establishing the church in her identity in Christ. Among other locations he has visited, Daniel has a massive heart for South Africa and still leads teams there annually.
In 2008, with the encouragement of friends and leaders, Daniel began mentoring young men while helping to oversee a property in Redding. After investing into these young men's lives, God gave him a dream of a discipled housing community where young men and women would create an environment for spiritual growth, maturity, and personal development. Over time this dream became the community now known as Grace Place. Daniel's passion for Christ, dedication to excellence, and selfless love have brought out the full potential of the young men and women he disciples. Daniel regularly organizes and leads teams across the world and continues to oversee Grace Place which has grown to 10 properties.
