Danny was born in Manitoba, Canada and spent most of his school years in the city of Brandon. His family grew up as very strong Roman Catholics, at least until his immediate family got saved and Spirit-filled during the Charismatic Movement that swept through Canada. Throughout his adolescent years, Danny attended a local Pentecostal church with his family, but never pursued a personal relationship with the Lord. After years of running from God, and a life-altering close call with death, he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ at the age of 21. He later graduated from New Life Bible College in Cleveland, TN. He married Laurie, and they immediately began working in the ministry. They moved to Billings in October of 1996, and have since become an integral part of New Life Church. They began the Teen Drama Team in 1997, which led to them becoming the Youth Pastors in 1998. Besides his role in the Youth and Children’s Department, Danny has also helped facilitate the New Life Church Minister’s-In-Training program, and helped birth both the Young Adults Ministry and the recent Generations Internship Program.

Danny is passionate about his love for the Lord, and his love for his family. God has also given him a real love for the local church, and the understanding of how much of a blessing and strength that it is to a believer. Danny loves doing life with like-minded followers of Christ and is passionate about raising a generation of world changers that live far above the standards of this world. His future goal is to continue to lead his family, and those God has entrusted to his care in the things of God. He desires to leave a lasting legacy of love, and understanding of the Word, that will impact generations to come.

Intertests:   hanging out with his wife and kids, coaching his children’s sports teams, working on his house, the occasional round of golf, and just sitting around talking & dreaming about the things of God.
