Daniel Longden – Director of Youth & Family

The Longdens

As a servant of Christ, I am honored to be on staff at First Lutheran Church as their Director of Youth & Family.  A little about me: My bride, Kim and I married in 2001 and since then have been blessed with four beautiful children; Micah, Grace, Seth and Jonah.  I attended Concordia Ann Arbor and graduated with a BA, Majoring in Family Life Ministry and Minoring in Youth Ministry.  I graduated from CUAA in 2008 and took my first Call to Zion Lutheran Church in Petoskey, Michigan.  Since then, God has really shaped me in the ministry that He Called me to.  Family Ministry is a critical and biblical component of how we live as Christians and people tied to a community group, both by birth and geographical location.  My approach to ministry is to equip parents and other family members to be the primary faith shaper in their children’s lives.  My goal is to partner with each family and local community group in this endeavor.  Feel free to contact me and we can discuss this further over lunch.  🙂
