On Faith & Family
Dan was born in Thailand as the second son of a missionary family and he believed in Christ at a young age. Joan is the eldest of six children and came to a saving faith in Jesus at age 19. They met soon after that when they were both students at a Bible school in South Carolina.
Dan and Joan were married in 1986. They have two adult daughters; one is married and in nursing school and the other is engaged to be married and is doing social work with at-risk children. One of Joan’s life verses is John 10:10, “I have come that they might have life and that more abundantly.” Joan desires that everyone would have the opportunity and the open heart to receive the abundant life Jesus wants to give to them. Dan’s missionary verse that compels him to Global Recordings is John 10:16, “Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
