Pastor Daniel grew up near Wichita, KS and experienced a call to ministry early in life. God’s love was made real in his life, so, he dedicated it to serving God through the church. He received his BS in Ministry from Central Christian College of Kansas in 2009 and an M.div from Saint Paul School of Theology in 2016.
He served as the Director of Youth Ministries at Woodlawn UMC in Derby, KS from 2009 until 2015; then, he accepted his first pastoral appointment at First UMC in Sabetha, KS. Elkhorn Hills UMC enthusiastically welcomed him as part of leadership on July 1, 2019.
Rev. Kipp married Christie in 2011. She loves the church and has a passion for music as well as discipleship ministries. Christie and Daniel have three daughters, Nora, Luci, and Cate. They are all delighted to be part of this congregation.
