OUR PASTOR

Daniel Haveman is a native of North Dakota who was born when his father and founding Pastor John Haveman was serving at ODBC.  He grew up in western Montana as a preacher’s kid and received Jesus Christ as a young boy.  At the age of 19, disgusted with himself and poor decisions, Daniel surrendered his life to whatever purpose the Lord would have for him.

Shortly thereafter he moved to Florida to attend Pensacola Bible Institute; he graduated in 2005. It was there that he met his future wife Ashley and the two were married the following year. 

In 2006, the Lord led them to Bismarck to assist in the ministry of ODBC.  Daniel owned a small construction business for seven years while helping out the church in whatever capacity was needed. He and Ashley served the Lord in the areas of music, youth ministering, evangelism and teaching. 

On May 19th, 2013, the members of ODBC graciously voted Daniel in as their new pastor. 

Many of the current members remember Daniel as a baby and often remind him of that fact.  Daniel truly loves this congregation and feels deeply privileged to be their pastor.

We are excited to see how the Lord will use this great group of Christians in North Dakota’s capital city, for his own honour and glory.
