Pastor Daniel is from McAllen, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley.  He and his wife, Courtney, were called into ministry in 2013, a year after their sweet reunion with their children.  They are blessed with five gifts of God, Trinity, Danny, Calvary, Johnny, and Mikey.  

Daniel attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and earned a Master's of Divinity with a concentration in preaching.  He has been a part of Mt. Carmel since February 2017.  He also holds a Bachelor's of Business Administration from Texas State University.

Daniel has a passion for families and their walk with Christ.  He loves seeing people choose Jesus and use the life that the Lord gives them to point others to Jesus.
