Pastor Dan Alban- Senior Pastor
Born in the Philadelphia suburbs to parents who were in ministry, I have literally been in church since I was born. I committed to follow Christ as a child but wandered into lukewarm faith in my teenage years. It was at Word of Life Bible Institute that I was convicted of how I had wandered from Jesus and recommitted my life to Him. The Lord called me into ministry in my college years and especially burdened me for students. I have been serving in youth ministry in some capacity since 1996.
In 2012, I was introduced to my wife Beth through a family in my church. She had been serving as a youth leader, worship leader and in traveling drama productions. Less than a year later, we were married. In 2013, we added Gavin to our family. In 2014, we added Nora. Lizzie was born in 2016 and Silas in late 2017.
God has been faithful in both of our lives and we hope to always be able to serve as a team. Our hearts want to see Jesus made famous and for the church to be active and filled with joy.
