Having grown up in the Pittsburgh area, God's Call took Dan across the ocean before bringing him back to Pittsburgh again. After Bible College, Dan travelled to Scotland where he met his wife Charlene during a Summer of Service with YWAM.
They ended up staying eight years in Great Britain where they planted a Church in Scotland and a Church in England.
Coming back to Pittsburgh in 1985, Zion Christian Church became their third Church plant. This Church was launched on Christmas Eve of 1991 at Howard Johnson's Hotel. The theme was "There is room for Jesus in this Inn".
