Being baptized, confirmed, and ordained at First Presbyterian, Orangeburg, he will tell you that he has been aware of God’s love for him in Jesus Christ every day of his life.

He’s served churches in Thomasville, Georgia and York, SC before coming to Westminster.

Daniel is married to Amy, and he calls her “my favorite person in the whole world.” They are the parents of Andrew, Lauren, and Matthew. They love family time: learning, hanging out together, and visiting friends and family.
