Dan Berger

Position: Elder

Who is in your family? I married my best friend, Claire, in 2004.  We have three sons: Jackson (14), Evan (13) and Andrew (11).

How long have you attended Grace? We’ve called Grace home for 18 years.

What Grace ministries have you been involved with and how are you discipling/mentoring?  In our time with Grace, I’ve participated in several wonderful ministries including Grace Kids, Men’s Quest, and served in various roles to help build adult communities.  In more recent history, I’ve enjoyed finding ways to serve alongside my wife.

For the past 7 years, Claire and I have been part of the Pre-marriage Mentoring team that helps young couples build a solid foundation upon God’s truth.  We also serve together a few times a year in Square One.  Claire leads the group focused on first time moms discussing the various challenges they may be facing. I meet with the new dads to encourage them and equip them with ways to be intentional and supportive of their wives.

What is your educational background and current job? After graduating college from Texas State University, I couldn’t stand the thought of spending my days working in an office and went to the fire academy. For the past twenty years, I’ve been blessed to make a career in the fire service.  I currently lead a division in a local fire department as a fire marshal. For this position I primarily work in an office (God’s got a great sense of humor).

What is your prayer for Grace Covenant Church? My prayer for all of Grace is that, to the best of our abilities, we continue to love the folks around us like Jesus would.  As the cities around us change and grow, I pray we continue to boldly proclaim the Word of God from our very visible spot here on the hill, welcoming all who are seeking.
