About Captain Dan
Dan’s life has been a hobby out of control! Dan invites men to listen to their life and to wrestle with the questions and struggles that matter most--who is Jesus? And, how does Jesus want them to live? After dropping out of college in 1982 Dan built one of the most successful charter fishing businesses on the Great Lakes. Despite the great catches of fish, financial gain and tournament victories, he was dying on the inside. Dan was a rebel on the run who eventually ran into the greatest storm he had ever faced. It was in the midst of that storm that God threw Dan the first of seven life rings. This began a long and painful journey that led a broken man to the ultimate Truth--and a New Life.
