An ordained minister with over 25 years of ministry experience, Dan pursues a clearly defined vision for modern church ministry. A North Shore native, he served nearly a decade in full-time ministry in New York, Ohio and Missouri before returning to his hometown area in October 2007 to lead DCN. Dan’s passions include his relationship with Jesus; Rebekah, his wife of 25 years; his four sons; reaching unchurched and dechurched people with Christ’s love; and to identify, develop and empower spiritual leaders.
The Milette’s have a history with DCN: Rebekah moved from Indiana to Danvers in 1989 and attended the church for a year before meeting Dan. She was actively involved in the young adult group and made a decision to follow Christ through that ministry. Before leaving to serve in full-time ministry with Dan, she led worship at DCN on a regular basis. The Milette’s had their wedding shower at the church in 1991, and their wedding ceremony was officiated by Dr. Ken Mills, a former pastor of the church.
