Dan’s journey with Jesus the Messiah began at the age of five years at Berean Baptist Church in West Denver. He came to know Christ as his Savior at a summer Vacation Bible School.
His journey continued when he gave his life completely to the gospel ministry at the age of sixteen, during a winter retreat. It was during this time that he changed his career goals from Forestry to pastoral ministry. This also changed his educational direction causing him to attend Florida Bible College for his double major in Pastoral Studies and Biblical Education.
From there, Dan’s journey led him to teach at Arvada Christian School in Arvada, Colorado. While teaching there, he met and married his lovely wife Michelle. After that, they left teaching to help her parents in Climax Springs, Missouri.
It was while attending church at the Faith Southern Baptist Church of Climax Springs, Missouri that their lives would forever change. The Lord led them through that ministry to ultimately attend Midwestern Southern Baptist Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri for his Master's of Divinity. He has been pastoring churches for over 34 years.
Michelle and Dan have two girls ~ Rebecca Dellinger - RN and ministry leader, and Rachel Dellinger-Burek serving in law enforcement. Rachel and her husband Brad have given them two precious grandson's, Coen and Cason.
Connor has been a believer in Christ since the age of 10. He attended University Hills Baptist Church as a child and went on to follow Christ in other ministries, Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church and The Navigator's collegiate ministry, throughout high school and college. In college, the Spirit tapped into Connor's rebellious side and urged him to be the ultimate rebel, against society, and he gave up his life to Christ wholeheartedly.
His passion for worship music has stayed with him since the end of middle school when he played bass and began being mentored under the wing of his good friend Zac Hicks. Under Zac, he developed a passion to not only play fun worship songs, but to equip God's people to enter into a deeper relationship with Him through the words we sing to Him. Connor currently feels the call to go to seminary in anticipation of entering into full time ministry down the road.
In Connor's spare time, he enjoys going on hikes, eating unique foods, and reading often. Of course, all of these things are better done with his wife, Jess.
