Pastor Dan Bell was born on July 5, 1974 and raised on a dairy farm in the hills of northern Pennsylvania. After graduating from High School, he attended the Northeast Baptist School of Theology in Downingtown, PA. While at the school, he accepted the Lord as his Savior on October 21, 1994 and then surrendered to the call to preach in the spring of 1995. It was also here that he met his future wife, Shaylyn.
· In the fall of 1996, he moved to New Jersey where he began serving as Associate in charge of Teen/Youth ministry at the Christian Bible Baptist Church in Bayville.
· Pastor and Shaylyn were married on May 31, 1997. They continued ministering together at their church until 2006, at which time Dan accepted a call that was extended to him from The Cornerstone Baptist Church of Browns Mills, NJ, to be their pastor. He and Shaylyn have faithfully been serving the Lord along with their 3 boys, Joshua, Jeremy, and Nathan, since that time.
