Pastor Dan was born and raised in North Hatley, Quebec. He sensed the call to preach the Gospel at the very young age of six. When he was seventeen, he enrolled at Canadian University College, graduating in 1999 with a BA in theology/preministry. He then went to serve the Maritime Conference in 1999, serving first in Cape Breton as the senior pastor of the North Sydney Seventh-day Adventist Church. In the spring of 2004, he was asked to serve the Halifax and Fox Point churches in mainland Nova Scotia, where he continues to serve today. He likes to write and restore old things, whether it be tractors, furniture, or cars, but his passion is teaching people about the Restorer of souls. He and his wife Tracey have two beautiful children, Danielle and Nathaniel. They now make their home in Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia.
