Dr. Dan Mooney trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at age 4 in Minneapolis, MN in his home as a result of faithful Christian parents and their witness to their children. He was baptized by immersion at age 9 in the Temple Baptist Church of LaCrosse, WI. At the age of 16, he received God's call upon his life to preach the Gospel. He publicly acknowledged that call to preach at age 18 on September 13, 1972 while a student at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College. Beginning as a Youth Pastor at the age of 19, Pastor Mooney has been involved in active public ministry ever since. He has served as Senior Pastor in churches in Ottumwa, IA and Rochelle, IL. Pastor Mooney has served at Elliot Road Baptist Church since September 2003, and he and his family are rejoicing in this ministry.
