Daniel prayed to receive Christ when he was 8 years old and, during high school and early college years, began ministering to churches through music. Out of these experiences came his call to full-time Christian ministry. He received his Bachelors degree in music at Ouachita Baptist University and Masters of Music at University of Houston.
