Pastor Danny describes himself as a “happy husband and father, a pastor, a part-time semi-professional theologian, a US Marine, a Blues Guitarist with a smokin’ Fender Stratocaster and a sometimes goofball.”
He grew up in San Jose, California, after HS graduation enlisted in the Marine Corps. He had a conversion experience accepting Christ as a young man.
He graduated from California Baptist University and Golden Gate Baptist Seminary and did doctoral work at UC Berkeley Graduate School. Other school studies were with Dallas Theological Seminary and a doctorate from Calvin International University.
Danny brings experience and wisdom into ministry with a gift for preaching the Bible with, as he says, “clarity and charity”.
“I believe in building up and encouraging people in my preaching. God’s Word has the best answer and hope for people. Preaching must result in more than information and inspiration, it must bring transformation. It’s all about changed lives.”
Sandy is the administrative assistant/secretary at Arbor. She’s been serving in this position for 13 years. Before that she worked at our Christian school as the assistant director and still works over there in the mornings with the kids before coming into the church office. She loves working in the office and enjoys meeting new people. Three of her favorite scriptures are Hebrews 11:6, Isaiah 26:3 and Jeremiah 29:13. All three of them talk about God’s faithfulness and how awesome our God is!
