After 9 years of full-time children’s ministry, Dan joined the Orange team bringing not only the perspective of a ministry practitioner and the father of four but also the knowledge of an avid reader. (We have becoming increasingly convinced there is no book on child development and parenting Dan has not read.)
Maybe interviewing Orange staff is like cheating, but every time I’m in a room to talk about Phase with Dan I think “everyone needs to hear this”. What he understands in theory from research, he has lived out practically with thousands of elementary kids in ministry, and personally with elementary kids in his own home. He keeps our Phase conversations entertaining, educated, and grounded.
