Daniel & Dawn met in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in the Summer of 2002 after she graduated high school. In 2005, they surrendered their lives to Jesus in Daniel’s apartment, and shortly after, they realized they wanted to pursue God and life together. They were married a year later and at that same time Daniel was being called into aviation and youth ministry. They moved to Spokane, Washington to attend Moody Bible Institute where Daniel went through an intensive Bible, Mechanical, and Pilot curriculum. After completion, they moved back to Iowa in 2012 to serve this community and start Paraclete Aviation , a ministry created to serve the local high schools with aviation training and discipleship.
Dawn enjoys being a home-school mom to their four children, Alena, Azaryah, Hosanna and Selah. She loves to spends her spare time gardening and re-purposing what others call junk. She has a heart to worship, serving others with her gifts, and helping young people catch a vision for Jesus.
Daniel & Dawn were led to begin attending Calvary in October 2015. They have been faithfully serving in the youth ministry since 2016 and God has been using them mightily in that calling. They have a true heart for the Lord, the youth, and for each other. They are wonderful examples to this generation of what it looks like to give all you have for Jesus!
