Pastor Dan Forehand


Dan became our pastor in June 2014 and is excited to become a part of the community of Grace Lutheran Church!  Pastor Dan is married to Kim, who is an occupational therapist working in Elkhart and St. Joseph's County.  Dan comes to us from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.


Pastor Dan believes in the transformational power of the Holy Spirit at work in the world today.  The gospel is not simply good news about what happens after our earthly lives, but speaks to us in our present weakness and challenges.  Pastor Dan preaches sermons that are based on the biblical promise of hope, connecting those stories to contextually relevant issues in our present lives.


In addition to serving the church, Dan loves to be outdoors with his wife.  They like biking, hiking, camping, kayaking, and spending a nice day on the beaches of Lake Michigan reading and relaxing!
