As Director and Speaker of El Faro de Redención, Dan brings a rich background in counseling and theological studies together with pastoral internship and church planting involvement in international contexts. Since 2016, Dan has served at Haven Ministries as a writer for HAVEN Today.
Originally from Kansas, Dan spent his teenage years on the mission field in a rural Mexican village. In 2011, he married Mariana, who is from Sonora, MX. Dan and Mariana welcomed their first child, Sophia Alba, in June 2018.
Dan holds a degree in Biblical Counseling, and a Master of Divinity from an accredited evangelical seminary in the United States. In college and seminary, his involvement in the international student community and a semester of study in Israel increased his desire to see men and women from all nations worship Jesus. Dan's passion and heart for El Faro de Redención is that through programs centered on Christ and his grace and stories of faith from the Cuban church many would come to rest in the redemption found in Jesus.
