About Daryl
  • Education: Bachelor’s degree: Concordia College, Wisconsin Master’s degree: Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
  • Experience: I have been a pastor since 1993. During college, I worked as a camp counselor for two years and a camp program director for one year. As I began ministry, I served a dual parish first of all and then a small single congregation, both in Kansas. Recently I accepted a call to my current congregation, where we are beginning work on a building program.
  • Family: I have been blessed with a wife and two little girls; one is almost three years old, and the youngest is seven months. I have a father and twin brother who are also in the ministry!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: The best advice (period) that has ever been given to me was "love your people." I pray that as I preach God’s Word, the things I say would flow out of an active and sincere love for God’s people.
  • Hobbies: Guitar-playing, fishing, archery, camping, canoeing, hiking, and bicycling are some of the things I enjoy--and just about anything that gets me out into God’s beautiful creation!
