About Daniel

Hi. I’m Daniel, the writer of two albums Hear Our Praises and Turn My Desert. On this blog, I share my reflections on Christianity and application. This page will give you a crash course on what to expect.

Daniel Harrison


I believe every Christian should study, understand, and live the message they profess. And I consider it my life’s mission to help them do that.

I’ve been a Christian my whole life, but still exploring what it means to be a Christ follower. My purpose in life is not to be a successful singer-songwriter, local church pastor, or grow a big church.

My purpose is to wake up every morning and answer the question: “How can I show and tell people Jesus, make them disciples, and be a true disciple myself?” Nothing else matters.

I started this blog with a few burning questions:

  • What is God’s great and global purpose for humanity?
  • How can I help Christians understand the Christian message?
  • How can I help Christians discover their purpose and live it out passionately?

My ultimate passion is to make disciples of all nations, and I use songwriting as a tool to do that. I write songs simply to teach people the truth of God’s grace, and challenge believers to live on mission. I am working on a new writing project which includes some freshly recorded music. Subscribe at the bottom and I’ll send them to you when they arrive.

If you have a desire for understanding the truth about God, Man, Jesus, the Bible, and find your place in changing the world, this is the place for you.

I publish new articles one or two times per month and always seek to serve my readers. If you don’t want to miss a thing, sign up below and I’ll send you a free eBook:

More of what I do

To get more specific, I am a Christian singer-songwriter and local worship pastor in Southern California at Church 212. I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama but in 2006, moved to Southern California at the age of 18 along with my family.

It was there in Rancho Mirage, that I first began playing guitar and writing songs. 10 years later, I now live in Indio, CA and am a local worship pastor of Church 212.

I have two records released and you can find Hear Our Praises here and Turn My Desert here. They exist to Glorify God, share the Gospel, and edify the church.

Also check out a local men’s ministry I am very proud of–men who lead. We have 7 men’s groups in our church who are passionate about biblical manhood. If you are local, Join the community!

I am proudly apart of local association called, the LOV Movement. It is an association of pastors, ministers, and marketplace leaders who all share the same passions for ministry.

Each month, these community of leaders gather together to pray and share in what God is doing within the communities!

Unity among churches is highly valued in the Coachella Valley.
