Daniel has been a member of First Christian Church since the fall of 2012 and joined us as our pastor in December of 2015. Daniel was born in India and was raised in Southern California. Daniel’s great-great-great-grandfather was the first convert through the efforts of missionaries from Bristol, England. Daniel grew up in a Christian home and knew from an early age he wanted to serve God in any way possible.
After graduating with a Bachelors of Religious Education and Masters of Religions Education from WCBC in Lancaster, California he moved to Oregon. Daniel’s testimony is a strong reminder to us all that God is never finished writing our story and His love for us knows no bounds. He has a strong passion for reaching those who have yet to experience what it means to have a personal relationship with God. He is an avid sports fan and is favorite teams include the LA Lakers, LA Dodgers, Cincinnati Bengals and (of course) the Oregon Ducks!
Daniel and Libby have been married since August 2018. They enjoy visiting restaurants in search of the best brunches around, travelling and going on adventures, and finding their joy in their relationship with Christ.
