Danny Wilson
Worship Pastor

IMG_0141Danny and Nancy provide the music at Springdale Baptist Church. Both gifted with musical and vocal talent, they performed professionally for over 12 years in secular venues. Having both been raised in Christian environments, they realized that God had a greater plan for them and they dedicated their gifts to praising God through music. They served as worship leaders at Brea Baptist Church, New Beginning Church in Buena Park where Danny was ordained to the Gospel Ministry and served as the Associate Pastor.

With their son, Daniel, they formed a Christian group called Prodigal. For several years they gave Christian concerts and played at several community events, performing many of the songs that they have written through the years. In 2008, God directed them to organize a new church in Anaheim where Danny gained invaluable experience in ministry serving as the Senior Pastor. In 2011, Danny and Nancy were led in a new direction by God, away from the work in Anaheim, which ultimately brought them to Springdale Baptist Church. Danny is a dynamic leader of worship, and together the Wilsons set the tone for the study of God’s Word.
