Worship/Creative Pastor

Daniel Hazel has studied organ under the teaching of Ross Jallo and Todd Gresick. With them, he learned both classical pieces and sacred works which has expanded his musical capabilities. He has studied piano under the guidance of Robert Kania. He has worked in several different churches and ministry growing a music ministry and church. He is honored and thrilled to start work at First Christian Church, and he looks eagerly to see where God will guide the church.

He and his wife, Emma, grew up together, and they will be celebrating their one year anniversary in July. They love traveling and exploring new places, as well as walking, hiking, reading, board games, and watching a show.

Although it is hard to pin point a specific favorite Bible verse, there are three verses that have shaped Daniel’s walk with the Lord the most. They are:

  • Jeremiah 29:7 – But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.
  • Exodus 4:11-12 – Then the LORD said to him, “Who gives speech to mortals? Who makes them mute or deaf, seeing or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you are to speak.”
  • Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
