LCS Alumni 2008
Originally from a small town in Iowa, the DeBell family moved to Tulsa, OK to be apart of the growing community of Church On The Move in 1995. A few years later, Dan started attending LCS until he graduated in 2008. Dan worked on the Landscaping Team at COTM for several years and considered COTM & LCS to be home. Wanting to stay close and connected, Dan went to Rogers State University in Claremore, OK. There he discovered his passion for serving people, so he pursued a career in Law Enforcement, majoring in Criminal Justice.
Shortly after graduating from Rogers State in 2011, Dan felt a call on his life to be in full time ministry. Doors quickly began to open for Dan to work at COTM as a Kid’s Pastor where he was able to lead a team of volunteers and an elementary room averaging an attendance of 350 kids every weekend.
As a part of the Kids On The Move team, Dan has had the opportunity to teach and impact thousands of elementary age kids through different avenues such as weekend services, summer camps at Dry Gulch USA, and through the building of KOTM’s own curriculum that has impacted hundreds of churches nationwide.
Continuing to grow in his leadership, Dan is currently the KOTM Director for the Central Campus of COTM. He now oversee’s a team of 10 full-time staff, leading 400+ volunteers, that show over 2,000 kids the love of Jesus every week. According to Dan, “It is my greatest honor to serve the local church. I can’t imagine doing anything else!”
