Main Speaker

Pastor Dan was raised in the greater Philadelphia area, receiving degrees in speech communication from Penn State University and the Masters in Divinity & the Doctor of Ministry in Urban Missiology at Biblical Theological Seminary. He is driven for God’s work in the city having served with urban churches in Philadelphia and Baltimore. In 2008, Dan was privileged to lead a team to start The Village Church in Baltimore, MD with dreams of making God famous through a diverse and multicultural expression of the Kingdom of God.

His journey hasn’t been without many painful bumps along the road, but God’s patient grace has been evident the whole way. As God has blessed Dan in so many ways, he desire to invest in others. Dan trains and coaches urban church planters and regularly shares his thoughts at Lifeway Pastors. Speaking is a passion for Dan as he leads others on issues including leadership, urban ministry, justice, and church planting. He has also had an amazing experience starting the annual Ethnos Conference to lead the Church in conversations about multicultural mission and reconciliation.

Who We Are

REFUEL and RESTORE are collaborative events among like-minded Chicagoland churches. The two events work in tandem with each other. REFUEL is a revival meeting in the fall. We gather together under the preaching of God’s Word and respond in corporate intercession for spiritual renewal and revival in our generation. RESTORE is a missions weekend in the spring. We gather together under the preaching of God’s Word with a desire to grow in Christ-like love, and subsequently serve, the world around us.
