Daniel Lentz was born into a Christian home, and made a profession of faith at about age 8. He grew up with a desire to follow the Word of God. Later, in his teenage years, he began to experience doubts about his salvation, wondering if he really understood or meant it. During a week of Bible camp at age 17, he made sure of his salvation, and trusted Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. God changed his life, and began to give him fresh desires to serve Him.
The next year, Daniel sensed God was calling him to be a preacher of His Word. He received a B.A. in Pastoral Studies from Maranatha Baptist Bible College in 2013, and an M.B.S. from Baptist College of Ministry's seminary in 2017.
Daniel met his wife, Heidi, at Calvary Baptist Church, where they were married in June 2013. In the fall of 2017, they returned to Calvary, where Daniel now serves as the Assistant Pastor. He teaches the Teen Bible study, leads the congregational singing and church choir, preaches monthly, and helps with outreach. Daniel and Heidi both desire to see souls saved and believers surrender their lives to the will of God, that they might see the joy of walking with Him.
Having grown up in a very musical home, Daniel plays the piano and violin and sings. He has a deep love for godly, Biblical music and desires to see the great hymns of the faith continue to be sung in uplifting praise to the Lord.
In his spare time, Daniel enjoys learning about American and church history, driving his vintage Farmall tractor, and attending antique farm equipment shows and historical reenactments.
