Juan Daniel Kuan
Pastor, Spanish Language Ministry
Dapstep Ministries

Daniel was invited to become the Spanish Language Ministry leader at Dapstep Ministries even before he visited his first Dapstep Service.  His appearance might be puzzling since he is from Peru, speaks fluent Spanish, but is of Chinese and Japanese heritage.  However, Dapstep Ministry leaders were and are convinced that Daniel was hand chosen by God to lead this crucial ministry as we begin to outreach to the Latino and Spanish-speaking LGBTQ community.

Daniel came to the Lord in 1997 after being misled into attending an all-night vigil where the Lord proved He is a God of restoration.  Soon afterward, he found a love for and became active in ministry, even serving in the pastorate, until being forced to leave when outed to his church.

Even though Daniel came to know the Lord in his early adulthood, his heart and passion for the Lord competes with the most mature Christian.  Along with his husband, Luis, whom he married in 2010, both grew in the Lord at Freedom in Christ Church in San Francisco.
