Dan Venberg was born in Brooklyn, NY, just off the plane as his parents Rodney and Helen were returning from the mission field in Chad for their first home assignment. His birth came a few months earlier than expected, and as a result Dan was baptized in an incubator. He grew up on the mission field, and grew in his faith in the context of cross-cultural mission, coming to understand the sinful state of all peoples, himself included, and that by faith in the Christ alone, that there was complete assurance of salvation. Dan came to love the unique passion and calling of the Church of the Lutheran Brethren in regards to it’s international mission focus, and felt called to serve in that capacity. Dan has a Masters degree in International Resource Management from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and a Certificate of Theological Studies in Missions from Lutheran Brethren Seminary. He has served for 10 years as a missionary in Chad and 7 years as LBIM’s Mission Mobilizer and Recruiter. As of July 1, 2020, Dan has been serving as director of international mission for the CLBA. He and his wife Rachel live in Fergus Falls. They have two adult children and two children at home.
