My name is Daniel Quinby and I was born and raised in the midwestern city of Cedar Rapids, IA. I was born the second youngest of five siblings and blessed with incredible parents. I am married to a beautiful woman named Emily. I am currently the Campus Pastor and Director at Chi Alpha UNI in Cedar Falls, IA.
I grew up in church but never truly understood God’s grace until I was in the lowest of places and finally realized how much I truly needed Jesus. Now I understand that without Him, I am on an endless search for joy in all the wrong places. My walk with God definitely isn’t perfect but I’m trying my best to grow closer everyday.
I met my wife during my first week as a freshman student at UNI. I believe with all of my heart that God has huge plans for our lives and marriage. I hope to spend a lifetime full of adventures, laughter, and tears with Emily and to continue to build a relationship that truly reflects what God would want.
My dream is to be a loving and self-sacrificing husband and father first and foremost. And secondly to be a humble, conviction driven, grace-filled pastor of a thriving ministry. I also hope to write some books at some point.
This is just a little bit about me and some of the important things in my life.
Somehow, someway, I am loved by a King.
