Daniel L. Arter

Senior Pastor

Pastor Daniel and his wife Natalie moved to Philipsburg, Pennsylvania in 2020 with the intent of starting a Bible-believing and Bible teaching church that would reach the Moshannon Valley area. They had noticed a lack of biblical teaching and understanding in rural areas and through God's prompting and leading they determined to plant Grace & Peace. Daniel has a heart for intentional discipleship and expositional preaching, which informs the methodology behind his preaching and teaching style. 

Prior to planting Grace & Peace, Daniel served as an assistant pastor and interim pastor at two churches in South Carolina; and he served as a youth leader and deacon at a church in Central Pennsylvania. He holds a BS in Ministry and Leadership and an MA in Biblical Studies from Bob Jones University. He is currently pursuing an MDiv in Preaching and Pastoral Ministry from BJU Seminary.
