Daniel was born and raised in southern Brazil as a missionary kid. His experience growing up overseas was formative in shaping his view of God’s heart for the nations. He holds a masters degree in Bilingual Bicultural Education from Northeastern Illinois University, a Bachelors in Education from North Park University and an Associate Bible degree from North American Baptist College in Edmonton, AB. Daniel and his wife Andrea served in Uganda for 15 months learning what orphan care looks like in an African context. Their heart is to see orphans in families. They are exploring discipling couples into God-centered marriages and healthy families as an orphan prevention model.
