Pastor Daniel was born and raised in the little suburban town of Crowley, Texas. He grew up riding horses, playing baseball, and going to church. Daniel felt God's call to ministry at a summer camp when he was 13. He graduated from Texas A&M in 2013 with a degree in Communication before heading to Duke Divinity School, where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2017.

Daniel is married to Alex, and they have a beautiful daughter named Graysen (yes, after the Duke basketball player). Alex works in Children's Ministry and is an integral part of our Lakeway community.

Daniel is passionate about Aggie football, Duke basketball, fishing, golfing, and seeing people live abundant lives in Christ. You can follow him on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
