He has the gifts to make significant impact in the lives of others.”

“Dan is someone I have always looked up to since our days as college roommates.  He is consistent in his walk with God, confident in his abilities, and competent in his leadership.  I have learned much from his example and have appreciated his continued friendship over the last nine years.  I am excited to see where God leads him and how He uses him.”
