Finding ways for people to live wisely is a goal for Daniel as he draws on the wisdom of God and the transforming vision of the reign of God in his teaching and his practice of pastoral care and counseling. Prior to coming to AMBS in 1985, Daniel was associate professor of pastoral care and counseling at Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico for nine years. He lectures widely in North America, Latin America and the Netherlands and has written extensively in English and Spanish, including several recent works on pastoral and interfaith spiritual care. His research interests include intercultural hermeneutics and human formation and transformation processes. Daniel also serves as a pastoral counselor at a health clinic in Goshen, Ind., and provides supervision of pastoral counseling and chaplaincy students.

“I view the church as God’s alternative community called to carry on Jesus’ liberating, healing, reconciling, and recreating ministry. As a living sign of divine love and wisdom in and for the world, the church celebrates, embodies, and witnesses to the reign of God in worship, community, and mission.Practical theology involves contextual and committed reflection on the life and ministry of the church, and on the process of formation and transformation of persons, families, and communities. I enjoy being engaged in such an endeavor in the intersection of the disciplines and fields of theology, pastoral psychology, and education.”
