In 1981, Dan was challenged by Paul’s example in Phil. 3:7-8 that led him to resign from his teaching job in Rizal High School and join the Navigator staff as a full-time worker. He and Connie were assigned to campus ministry in Pasig City, Cabanatuan and Baguio respectively over a period of 20 years (80’s and 90’s). In 2001, they moved to Los Banos to help at the University of the Philippines, Los Banos. Then, they were assigned to Church Discipleship Ministry (CDM), where Dan and the CDM team ministered to church leaders in the different regions of the country. When there was a change of Nav leadership, Dan was assigned to oversee the ministry in Northern Luzon. Due to health issues in the family, Dan was allowed by the leadership to be on furlough. At present, he is ministering to five groups through virtual Bible studies and coaching. These groups consist of professionals, relatives, community and friends.
