Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Daniel Powell

I was raised in a Christian family. When I was 6 years old I accepted Christ as my personal Savior after a Sunday morning service at church. I dedicated my life to the Lord at the age of 13 at summer camp. Through my teenage years I continued to grow in my walk with Christ. I was greatly influenced for Christ by my godly Youth Pastor.  After I graduated from high school I attended Bob Jones University and studied Church Music. It was in a music class at college where I met my wife, Amanda. The name of the music class was “Basic Harmony” (a very appropriate name for a class where lovers met). After majoring in church music for three years, God was steering my heart in another direction. I was burdened for youth and felt called to minister to youth. In 2010 I graduated with a Bible degree.  In June of 2011, I married Amanda and we moved to Rhode Island where we both taught for 2 years in a Christian school and I oversaw the church music program. In the summer of 2013, God opened the door for me to serve as a Youth and Music Pastor at a Church in Texas. God has blessed us with two children: Makayla and Timothy. In September of 2015 I began my ministry at River Reach Baptist Church as Assistant Pastor, and am excited to see how God will use our church as we seek to serve Him.
