Dan Garza is the Youth Pastor for the Granite Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church. Dan was raised in an active Seventh-day Adventist home and received a personal call to a life of full time ministry at an early age. Determined to pursue a life of success, he began to pursue a medical career at the age of 14. His determination to enter medical school at an early age and his dis-interest in spiritual matters led him to become a “closet athiest.” After God supernaturally intervened in his life through a series of successive events, he not only became convinced that a God must exist, but that he needed to serve God in full time ministry. Dan has a passion for seeing young people unleash their potential for the Lord and wholeheartedly believes that the key to personal revival is a life of complete surrender to Jesus that leads to real experience with God. He is a graduate of the Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism.
