Lead Pastor at Terra Nova Church in Saratoga Springs, NY. Pilgrim. Husband. Father.
Daniel serves the church as the Lead Pastor through caring for people through, preaching, counseling and teaching. One of his greatest joys is witnessing people genuinely grow in their love and passion for Jesus, and the transformation of their lives that results.
Daniel and his wife Lea met in 2004 as participants in the L.I.F.T Discipleship program at Camp-of-the-Woods in Speculator, NY. This time served to deepen their love for the Lord and His word, and clarified Daniel’s sense of calling to pursue full-time vocational ministry. Daniel’s journey included camp ministry, youth ministry, and a pastoral internship at Terra Nova Church while receiving a Masters of Divinity degree at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. He was ordained by Terra Nova Church in May of 2012, and came on staff in the same year to serve as the Location Pastor for the church plant in Saratoga Springs.
Lea and Daniel, along with their children Everett and Dahlia, live in Saratoga Springs. In his spare time, Daniel enjoys exploring the outdoors, discovering new artists in the indie folk-rock scene, and drinking a good cup of Aero-pressed coffee.
