Daniel Leyrer, Southeastern Wisconsin District president
What was your upbringing like? I grew up in Milwaukee as the youngest of seven children and was blessed to have the finest set of Christian parents a child could ever ask for. My mother reflected the love of Jesus every day, was quick to share the gospel with me, and modeled God’s compassion throughout my childhood. My father served as a pastor for 44 years. I don’t know if he ever said, “Dan, you should be a pastor.” But that’s all I ever wanted to be, because I could see from little on that my dad helped people with God’s Word.
