Dan Keister


Daniel began serving in April 2016 at Monroe Community College (MCC) in Rochester, New York. He felt a burden for the students on the campus as soon as he walked into the doors of MCC. He was volunteered by his older brother to be a student leader the very first day Daniel attended the local campus ministry meeting, and he has not turned back since.

Daniel was saved at a young age and has attended church his whole life, but he became complacent. In middle and high school, he “wore masks” to try to get by as easily as possible. While attending the campus ministry, however, he faced the reality that this was not the way God designed him to live, and that it was destructive to himself and to others. Today, he seeks to serve Christ and others and wishes to share his story and his faith with everyone on campus and see them experience Christ in the same way he did.

Daniel has a rich family heritage of serving in ministry, including his parents and grandparents, who helped to plant churches when he was younger, and his brother, who is currently heavily involved with a church ministering in the city of Rochester. His family continues to support his faith journey in becoming closer to Christ and more like Him.

“God’s plan will come to fruition no matter what happens. That includes if I want to be a part of it or not, so it is up to me to decide if I want to be an active participant in His plan.” Daniel believes that God’s plans are superior to his own and chooses to follow them.
