My name is Daniel Roach and I am 36 years old. I have been in full-time pastoral ministry for the last 10 years, mostly in Orange County, CA (Newsong Church) and in Paris, France as a missionary with the Evangelical Covenant Church. Currently, I am living in Oklahoma City and pursuing a Master of Divinity and Master of Nonprofit Administration from North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago. I was ordained by my home church of Sunnybrook Christian Church in Stillwater, OK in 2006 and I am currently seeking ordination with the Evangelical Covenant Church in conjunction with my dual-degree. I am married (14 years now) with 3 kids – Cohen (8), Leighton (5) and Blythe (3).
I feel very fortunate in this season to be a full-time stay at home mom. I am currently using my psychology degree to keep my kids from driving me over the edge and experience in communications to fuel a few projects.
Our family has never been busier but, I will move mountains to bring resources to the areas of education and nutrition. I know there are some creative solutions out there (this being one of them) if we can just put the right pieces together.

His curly hairand crooked smile betray a hint of mischief in this little guy. He is our biggest risk taker while remaining tender and thoughtful. (He’ll do a back flip off the couch and then curl up in your lap and ask about your day.) This 5 year old loves puzzles, super heroes and jiu jitsu.
