Dan, who grew up in a Christian home, once said to God, “I hate you!” Ten days later, he became a Christian who loved to tell others about his Saviour, Jesus. He is originally from Rugby, Warwickshire, but came to Reading having met his wife Emma who was living here. A year with the London City Mission when he was 19 was awesome followed by a few amazing years working in a Secondary School and as a youth worker at his home church. After that, he felt God calling him to be in Christian ministry full time. So, he ventured off to deepest darkest Wales to study Theology for a few years before emerging to join Carey Baptist Church as an Assistant Pastor in 2012 and help get ChristChurch going. Along the way, he and Emma had two children and there’s another on the way (eek!). Being a part of ChristChurch’s birth and formation is his greatest privilege! His other greatest pleasures include curry, Lego and tickle-fights with his kids!
