As a lay couple, Dan & Cherri for more than 40 years (since early 70’s) have been helped, encouraged, and partnered with The Navigators. Their first involvement with The Navigators was while Dan was in the Marines at Camp Lejeune, NC; then, as students when Dan & Cherri moved with The Nav’s to Greensboro engaging in student ministry. Later in life in they were involved B&P, then Metro and now are a part of NavCities.
Dan has spent 3 terms on the Nav Board as Chair of the Finance Committee, serving and contributing to Nav leadership. In 2012-13, they ventured out to see what God would do in OKC by being part of NavCities.
"Cherri and I individually disciple a number of men and women we encounter in the marketplace, engage strongly to help Nav20’s, lead prayer retreats, conferences and workshops. Our priority these days is to invest in those who will themselves bear generations of disciples and disciplemakers in the greater OKC area, and hopefully into the nations. We have asked God to accomplish 1 Chron. 12:22 in OKC."
In 2015, they celebrated their 40th anniversary, have 3 grown children, and 10+ grandchildren that spread from Nashville to Tucson to San Francisco. Dan is the CFO for former Governor David Walters and Cherri is on staff with the Hough Ear Institute, both using their employment and careers as natural laborers advancing the Navigator calling in our city. They are privileged to minister with a team of well qualified disciplemakers in various collaborating missional outreaches.
