On March 20, 1962, Dan accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and accepted God’s call into the ministry. He graduated from Toccoa Falls College with a BS in Bible and Theology in 1969, and immediately began serving as pastor to churches in Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. Both brothers served as pastors with the Christian and Missionary Alliance for more than 70 years combined. He and Myrle retired in 2009 and made their home in Bryson City, North Carolina.
