Danny began serving at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church in September 2015. His role as Executive Pastor includes responsibilities for overseeing Columbus ministry staff and personnel as well as leading our broad Discipleship Ministry. He loves to see people discover and grow with Jesus in personal and powerful ways. Danny seeks to lead through humility – Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves (Philippians 2;3) – combined with faith in the power of God to conquer life’s challenges – If God is for us, who can stand against us? (Romans 8:31).
Before coming to Waco, Danny has served churches in Oklahoma and Texas in the pastoral roles of missions, education, discipleship, leadership and interim pastor. He and his family also served in Brazil as missionaries with the International Mission Board. Danny holds a Bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University and a Master’s of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Danny married Lorrie in 1984, and they have two married kids living in the metroplex; Erin (Byron) and grandson Jaedon and Brady (Megan) and grand-dog Taters and grand-cats Pip and Trappy.
