Danny Whisner

Director of Young Adults & Assimilation

Danny serves many ministry areas of Northwest, connecting people, cultivating culture, developing leaders, providing support to ministry leads and more.

After working alongside his father at the church where his dad was the senior pastor, he then spent several years in client management. Throughout his years in the corporate world, God was continuously preparing and renewing a passion in his heart to return to full-time ministry.

Danny met his wife at Northwest in 2008. After getting married and moving out of town, God graciously brought him back to serve on staff.
