Daniel enjoys serving in ministry as a teacher, preacher, and pastor.  He was appointed to Petal UMC in 2013.  He enjoys reading with a good cup of coffee, visiting friends with a good cup of coffee, and pretty much anything else with a good cup of coffee.  
When he is not spending time with his wife and 4 daughters or serving in ministry, he can be found on the golf course!  
Some of his favorite authors are Shane Claiborne, Eugene Peterson, and Ted Dekker.
He is a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary and an ordained elder of the UMC.

Worship Leader, reTHINK/
Youth Minister
 Hello!  My name is Drew, I play keys, sing, write, and arrange.  I studied music at Belmont University and graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in 2011.
I am excited about the ministry we can accomplish together at Petal UMC.  
You may have noticed that Daniel and I share the same last name  and that’s because we share the same parents.  I’m excited to be working in ministry together with my brother.
