Daniel's spiritual heritage comes from the western Canada "Bible Belt" movement, where he graduated from Prairie Bible Institute in 1977. He upgraded to a Bachelor of Religious Education at Winnipeg Bible College, and he received a Master of Divinity from Winnipeg Theological Seminary in 1981. Dan then took a computing diploma from NAIT and has worked in computer programming and management for the past 25 years. He and his wife Pearl and are currently involved in an Anglican church in which they lead a small group. Dan and Pearl are parents to a son and daughter who are both in their twenties.


In 2004, he began a spiritual listening and fathering role to a couple men in his church, and he attended a Soul Stream retreat at Kingsfold Retreat Centre in Cochrane, AB which encouraged him in the ministry of spiritual direction. Dan has completed the Urban Sanctuary Spiritual Direction training. He says, "If you meet me, you will discover that I listen from my heart to your story, I share your journey, and I pray for you."
