Daniel Moore is our Assistant Pastor. In 2010, he moved to Sydney, Australia where he attended Hillsong College for two years. He received a Diploma in Pastoral Ministries while there. During that time, God gave him a burden for Salt Lake City, seeing the church come together in unity and the lost come to Jesus. A year after moving back to Utah, he was hired on as the Assistant Pastor.
He leads the Connect Group ministry, Outreach Ministry, and co-leads the Worship ministry. His heart is to reach a lost and hurting world and believes that when the church steps in and becomes the church that God’s called it to be, change happens.
He was married to Charish on March 14th, 2015 and they began their journey of loving God and loving people together.
