Pastor Dana is our senior pastor for preaching and vision. He leads the staff and serves as an elder at Faith Baptist Fellowship. He has a heart for encouraging people to study, understand and apply God’s Word.
Dana’s first senior pastor position was at Trinity Baptist Church in Lincoln, NE from 1983 to 1996, which explains his support of the Cornhuskers!
From 1996 to 2009, Dana was director of Prayer First, the prayer mobilization ministry of Converge Worldwide (Baptist General Conference). He has spoken at hundreds of churches, conferences and on mission fields around the world. He continues to serve on America’s National Prayer Committee and the Denominational Prayer Leaders Network. Dana’s ministry at Faith Baptist continues to be defined by his passion to inspire people to pray.
In the fall of 2009, Pastor Dana was called to Faith Baptist Fellowship to serve as the senior pastor for preaching and vision.
Dana and his wife Christa have three adult daughters. Anna makes her home in Sioux Falls. Mary is working with unreached people groups in New York City, and Betsy is earning her PhD in physics at the University of Minnesota in Mankato. Dana’s father was a pastor for over 50 years and is now with Jesus. His mother Mary lives in Sioux Falls and is a member at Faith Baptist.
