Here are some statements from Danny about ministry in the church:

"I am called to lead a congregation inclusive enough to welcome people with all beliefs who want to grow in the grace of God and as disciples of Jesus Christ. 

I am called to lead a congregation that is innovative in its worship life while also being rooted in tradition.

I am called to partner with a church that extends God’s grace to all who are seeking faith while also being a place where people who have been in church all of their life are alive to the Spirit.

I am called to share Christian community in a compelling way with new generations. This includes excellent and faithful ministry with children, youth, and their families. This also includes intentionally engaging with young adults in a way that draws them deeper into the life of faith and the community.

I am called to a mission that is rooted in a desire to fulfill God’s vision of wholeness for all people. The church must engage in mission both locally and globally in order to fulfill God’s vision and calling.”                                                                                                            ~ Rev.
