dan_headshotI am originally from Queens, NY, and encountered Jesus in my teenage years after my family relocated to Longwood, Florida. By God’s grace I  developed a passion for Christ and the Scriptures. I worked bi-vocationally for several years while serving as youth and associate pastor of a hispanic congregation in Central Florida. Later I served as a pastor and Executive Pastor of a congregation in Sanford, Florida.

I have always had a love for Christ’s Church and it is my passion to work both IN and ON the church. In 2009, I resigned from the church I was serving in as Executive Pastor to follow the vision the Lord gave my to prepare a “sent” people. Sent Church was born out of that desire to see a community of Christ followers live Gospel-centered lives and partner with Jesus in His mission.

God allowed me to marry the love of my life, Bethza, in 1991. She is my partner in life and ministry. We have a  young, eight-year old worshipper, Arielle.

I enjoy  sci-fi, heavy metal, action flicks, and I am an insatiable reader and life-long learner.
