In 2020 he earned his Master of Ministry degree from Grace School of Theology. Pastor Daniel and his wife, Rachel, grew up in rural Iowa and love living in a smaller community and ministering at Grace Church.

He and Rachel have been married since June, 2000, and have four children.

Rachel Bear


Rachel Bear is our part-time secretary.  She keeps the website up to date, designs and prints our bulletins, makes our announcement slides for Sunday morning, keeps the calendar updated, and also designs and prints our monthly newsletter.  She designs and prints many items for the various committees here at Grace Church.  You may find her updating the bulletin boards at church from time to time as well.

Rachel is Pastor Daniel’s wife, so she is kept busy trying to keep up with him.  She homeschools their children, so being able to do a lion’s share of the design work at home helps tremendously.  She is also the secretary for the AWANA club here at Grace.  She loves to sing, read and scrapbook, although she admits there isn’t much time for the latter two.
