About Dan
  • Education: B.S. Toccoa Falls College, Toccoa GA
  • Experience: Before becomming the Pastor at Bakerstown, I was the Director of Family Ministries for the Lighthouse Foundation in Butler PA. The Lightouse is a interdemoninational outreach facitlity
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: If I can help in any way contact me. I put these sermons up so that others can benifit. I am not looking to gain anything. I feel my outlines a pretty good and can help others. However, just a little warning, the grammer and spelling are horrible. But once you get past that they are pretty easy to enjoy. By the way if any of these sermons look like another sermon that you heard somewhere or even read on Sermon Central, that should not suprise you. I want to reach as many people with the Gospel as possible, if that means using other people sermons, Im going to do it. If I used one of your sermons, thanks!
  • One of my favorite illustrations: somehow I manage to relate every spirutal truth to my cross country experience. I have been working hard at preventing using any of those illustrations anymore, people get sick of them :)
  • Family: My Wife is trully my greatest supporter. We have 2 Kids, both boys. Isaiah was born in 2005 and Samuel in 2007
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My dad is a preacher so that is nice. We often will sit around and discuss how each other did and what we said wrong and what we could change
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I really honestly think that she likes them. I normally have a very well structured outline. She really likes that. Sometimes she tells me how much she liked the sermon without asking her.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: When you get to the conclusion, SHUT UP! dont ramble on for 20 more minutes
  • Books that have had an impact: Purpose Driven Church In a Pit With A Lion on a Snowy Day
  • Hobbies: Raquet Ball Running Puzzles Eating
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Love God with all Your heart. Serve God with all your heart. Live for God with all your heart.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Christmas Eve. I was getting ready for our Christmas Eve service, our biggest service of the year. I was trying to make sure everything was just right. I noticed an outdoor lightbulb was out. So I went up the bell tower and started to wiggle the light bulb. It shattered in my hands. I was bleading really bad. I put some bandages on it. I started the service, it was throbing, we took an offerering and it started gushing. During a special music I ran down stairs put more bandages on and quickly returned to the service. Got up preached and then we had a candle lighting. As soon as I lit my candle my hand started bleading again. Fortuanly I had some paper towels in my pocket. So I quickly lit the person on my left and right and blew out my candle, grabbed the paper towl, re lit my candle and continued on. After the service was over I made sure I got to talk to everyone who normally is not there. I then went to the hospital and had to get three stiches on Christmas Eve. Yes I find that storry funny (now I do anyhow :) )
  • What I want on my tombstone: Well done my good and faithful Son
