Bio: Dan Reeve began as CSM’s third president in September of 2008. Before coming to CSM, Dan served seventeen years as Urban Mission Director for the Evangelical Free Church Urban-Intercultural Mission. Dan’s passion for often-forgotten people in urban America was born from his own experiences growing up on the streets of New York City and having his life transformed by a small urban Church that adopted him. Dan has a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Education from Washington Bible College in Lanham, MD and an M-Div. Degree in Urban Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has served inner-city congregations in Brooklyn, NY, Chicago, IL, and Minneapolis, MN. He has also served as adjunct faculty at Northwestern College in Roseville, MN and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. Dan is driven by the conviction that the greatest needs of all urban and ethnic Americans is the people of God building relationships, empowering people, becoming incarnate in the lives of often forgotten people in a holistic way. He believes that it is this present generation that can bring transformation to at risk communities. This conviction also drives Dan to spend many hours in the urban “trenches” sharing his faith on the streets and mentoring inner-city youth.
Session: Is Your Mission Trip a Waste of Time?
Description: You have to ask, “Why are we going on mission trips?” A lot of times mission trips do more harm than good for those who go on the trip, for those who are served and for those who are left behind after we leave.
Dan Reeve has more than 35 years of urban mission experience and believes that mission trips can and should be doing good on purpose. In our time together we’ll explore motives for going on a mission trip, learn best practices that do good for those we serve and begin to equip our students to serve and lead for a lifetime.
If you are planning a trip in the U.S. or overseas, plan to use your resources to do the most good for God’s sake.
