Pastor Dan & Susan Dutch
Pastor Dan Dutch was born and raised in southern California in the South Bay area and attended Banning High School in Wilmington. Dan received Christ at a youth rally at Calvary Chapel South Bay in 1980.
Dan met his wife Susan in 1985 and they were married in 1987. They have four children all of which grew up in Downey CA and attended and graduated from Warren High School.
Pastor Dan's past struggles as a young man with substance abuse and violence have given him a heart to minister to the youth.
Pastor Dan started ministering to the youth at Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall in 1991. He became a licensed counselor with LA County Probation and counseled incarcerated youth in the Probation system for the Chaplains Eagles ministry and became a Chaplain in 2017.
He has served on the Building Committee and Church Board of directors at Desert Reign Church for several years. And has now stepped into the role of Lead Pastor.
Pastor Dan says that "If you say yes to the Lord, you'll live the most exciting and fulfilling life possible. I never thought I would be speaking or preaching from the pulpit, but when the Lord calls you, he sees gifts and talents that you don't. He will grow and stretch you for His purpose. We serve an awesome God!"
So, say yes to the Lord and see what happens! God bless you.
