Pastors Dan and Mary Shields.

Assitant Pastor, Public Relations.

“To grow spiritually in the service of The Lord.” Born in 1948 Dan graduated High school in New York, and shortly after enlisted in the air force. Married his wonderful wife Mary in 1970 and became the loving father of two boys and a girl. After coming back from assignment in England Dan met Jesus for the first time while attending a base gospel service. “There I felt the call into ministry.” Dan served as an usher, sang in the choirs, began studies in the bible, and taught Sunday school.Dan states that it was there that, “I served on the protestant chapel fund board as a representative of the gospel service.” Pastor Dan has for the last 20 years reached out in the preaching of the Lord at the local rescue mission every fourth Friday. After retiring from the Air force Pastor Dan served at Bethel A.M.E. where he again served in the choir, and served as head usher. He also served as Trustee, and Stewart. In 2000 Pastor Dan came to Praise Chapel Yuba City with his heart to serve. Here at Praise chapel he was quick to become involved with ushering and hospitality, as well as lending his talents to our worship team. Today he is one of our Assistant Pastors serving joyfully in the roles of Head Usher, Service Coordinator, and Pastor of Public Relations. We are blessed to have him.
