Daniel Oppenhuizen

Musical Worship Director

All Staff, Musical Worship

Daniel is a Memphis born and raised musician. Starting out as a volunteer worship leader in various ministries, he came to Hope first through the student ministry. While in college, pursuing a degree in Marketing, God started opening doors to lead worship at churches and youth retreats. It was at this point that he realized he could pursue musical worship as a career. In 2011, while volunteering as worship leader in Hope student ministry, Daniel was approached by Hope’s founding pastor, Dr. Craig Strickland, to consider becoming assistant worship director under Bruce Carroll. In 2014, Bruce retired from Hope and Daniel then was promoted to Director of Worship, making him the youngest in the country for a church that has the congregation size that we have. Daniel is married to his lovely wife, Jessica, whom he met in that very student ministry several years ago.
