Daniel Willingham

"I came to know the Lord in college with an invitation to a Bible study from a fellow baseball player where I heard the Gospel for the first time, and it immediately became real to me as my heart was changed. I brought my girlfriend with me to Bible study the next night, and the Gospel became real to her as well. I married that girl a couple years later, and after college, my wife and I worked in  student ministry together at a local church. Our faith continued to grow as we were poured into and mentored by some amazing people on staff.

One of my favorite ways to serve the Lord is by telling people stories of God's love and faithfulness through video and creative media. I also am very engaged in discipling men and love to serve with my wife by ministering to married couples and families."

Daniel studied Business Marketing at the University of Houston while playing college baseball as pitcher for the Houston Cougars. He worked in student ministry at Grace Community Church in Houston followed by the Fellowship at Cinco Ranch in Katy.  Daniel then worked for several years as the marketing director at Gas Innovations in Houston before moving into full time ministry with Crossings as Family Pastor.
