Dan has been our lead pastor since May 2009. Dan and his wife Sue moved to NH after serving 18 years at Valley Community Church in Pleasanton, CA. Dan trusted Jesus at an early age and was called to vocational pastoral ministry following the death of his father in 1975. He earned his Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. God has given Dan the gifts of teaching, preaching, and shepherding. He loves to see God transform lives through the power of the gospel. He also has a passion for our church to bring the hope of Christ to our community. Throughout his ministry, Dan has sought to fulfill Paul’s challenge in 1 Timothy 1:5, “The goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.” The Mitchums have two grown children, Alex and Grace. Dan and Sue love FCCO and continually thank God for giving them the joy of serving such a wonderful church family.
