Dan Branderhorst

Director of Activities (AD)

Dan supports coaches and students through the discipline of co-curriculars from 7th to 12th grade at Pella Christian. His joy comes from seeing students working together to a unified team and worshipping God through their gifts. A 2001 graduate, Dan enjoyed golf, basketball and percussion during his years at Pella Christian.

Dan’s deep hope is that students become transformative servants by living God’s story through the discipline of athletics.
