As Executive Director he provides vision for the way Beyond Classroom Conflict, Aim for Resolution, and Noverim te, noverim me work together to bring about relational transformation and renewal. His organizational skills help ensure everything is accomplished efficiently and in a timely manner.
As Spiritual Formation Catalyst Dan works thru Noverim te, noverim me to help people encounter Jesus in the midst of their everyday lives. He seeks to help people learn how to enter times of quiet and hear that still small voice of God speaking directly to them. God’s leading and directing has been important in shaping the direction of his life and he desires all people to enjoy the thrill of “life to the full” that Jesus promises.
Dan enjoys working with individuals and groups to help them discern a transformation path away from conflict and institutional stagnation towards reconciliation and ministry efficiency. His skills working toward these goals have been affirmed and celebrated in every ministry he has participated in. He is a graduate of the inaugural class of Nehemiah Leadership Network. Nehemiah Leadership Network’s mission is “to help equip the best pastors to be more effective change-leaders in and with their congregations.”
His understanding of the life and ministry of Jesus guides the way he interacts with individuals and groups. He has an ability to share compassionately, yet with honesty so that blocks to relational transformation are revealed and can be addressed. He speaks truthfully, yet with a spirit of grace so that the focus remains on moving toward organizational renewal. His goal for your congregation, family or business is that you would discover the unique vision God is calling you to fulfill.
Dan looks forward to working with you to help you discern God’s invitation to experience a piece of what “life to the full” looks like for you.
