Daniel has been serving as the Hawaii State Director since February of 2019! He's been working with FCA for 10years, he graduated from Clemson University in 2008 and met his wife Helia in 2012. They’ve been married for 5 years and have one daughter, Esther and due with their second in April 2019.
He started first as a Volleyball Area Rep in Orange County. In 2011 Daniel became the director of FCA Volleyball throughout Southern California. God even open doors for him to lead huddles in the AVP and USA National team. Then in 2015 they took the ministry basics of the volleyball ministry and translated them into other sports as Daniel lead sports specific ministries in Southern California. Then in 2016 Daniel joined forces with Barry Martinez as a Director in Talent Advancement for the Western Region.
Daniel and his team started an Internship Program that has influence the nation and how internships are done within FCA. They’ve graduated 140+ College athletes and over 100 are still coaching and influencing the volleyball world!
They’ve also pioneered ministry to club and travel sports, and tried to innovate ways to empower coaches in the volleyball world.
The impact of Daniel’s ministry to the volleyball community at the Huntington Beach Pier will hopefully continue through the handful of locals still loving and reaching the lost there.
