About Danny…

 

Danny Culbertson has always loved music. As a young boy of five, Danny began traveling and singing with his family. He sang and played the bass guitar for the family for the next ten years. Danny also had a love for racing, and started racing go carts at the age of six. He won over fifty races during his tenure with racing, and at the age of seventeen, had planned to start racing late model cars…until it became very evident that God had much better plans for his life. Danny knew that the Lord had called him to do something much more important, and that was to spread the Gospel of Christ Jesus and His life changing power.

 Danny met his first wife, Lori, when he was seventeen, and they were married on June 12, 1982. After a brief illness at the young age of twenty-four, the Lord called Lori home. Even though this was the hardest thing he had been through, Danny knew the Lord was in control and that something good would come of it. At Lori’s funeral, there were many who came to know the Lord as their personal Savior. This is one reason that one of Danny’s favorite verses to this day is Romans 8:28 “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” At his home a few days after the funeral, Danny says he heard the Lord speak to him and say, “I love you and will never leave you. I will always be there with you. I have a wonderful plan for your life.”
 A few months after Lori passed away, the Lord gave Danny a very special gift…a wonderful person to share his life…Carol Owen. Danny knew the Lord loved him, but had no idea just how much until the day He brought Carol into his life. He felt the words the Lord had spoken to him in his home that day after the funeral were suddenly fulfilled. Danny knew Carol would be the one who would be the ministry partner God would use to bring His plan to fruition. In 1993, he and Carol knew the Lord had called both of them to ministry.

 There have been a lot of ups and downs for Danny, as it is for every child of God, but he gladly testifies that the Lord has been faithful through it all. It has been an awesome journey and he says it has been amazing to witness all the things that the Lord has done so far. He prays the Lord will continue using his family for the cause of Christ and counts it an honor to be in worship ministry at MBC.

 Danny and his family truly found a home at MBC in May of 2004, and they invite you to pray and ask God if you are supposed to be a part of this family of believers, too. God strengthens us all as we band together in faithfulness, consistency, devotion and love. Serving together, we provide a powerful testimony to our community and world that Jesus saves and offers abundant life to all who will receive!
