For 24 years, Pastor Dan A. Thomas, Jr. has helped people see in themselves what God sees in them. Pastor Dan (affectionately known as PD) is a highly sought after Preacher, Motivational Speaker, Business and Mindset Coach, and Business Consultant. His blended style of pragmatic concepts and faith-oriented methods provides a unique presentation that speaks to churches, CEOs of major organizations, while at the same time offering time-tested how-to’s for the budding believer and entrepreneur. He is also a trusted prophetic voice helping individuals become aware and active in their purpose and destiny. PD began his ministry on December 27, 1998, at Greater Sapp Institutional Church of God in Christ. He received his minister’s license a year later and served as Church Administrator until 2002.

In the fall of 2002, PD moved to Los Angeles, CA, and began to serve at Brister Memorial Baptist Church in Compton. He served there from 2002 until 2011 as the Young Adult Minister and taught young adult bible study and adult Sunday School. PD also was ordained at this church in 2003. In 2005, PD began the D.R.E.A.M. Conference. D.R.E.A.M. stood for Direction, Revelation, Expectation, Acceptance, and Manifestation. It was a young adult conference that focused on the spiritual and natural development of young people ages 18-35 for the purpose of being a catapult into their God-given design and assignment. The conference grew quickly and averaged 200 or more in attendance and traveled to other states and cities within the Los Angeles County area.

In 2012, PD moved back to Oklahoma City and in 2014 launched Chosen Generation Church. PD and his wife Shasa served Chosen Generation Church for 6 years and then moved to Ft. Worth, TX in 2020.

PD now serves as Dean of Faculty, Staff, and Students for Kingdom Impact Bible College in Los Angeles, CA remotely. PD and his family are now launching Find Your Place Church in Ft. Worth, TX this fall.

PD’s passion is to help faith leaders and entrepreneurs who have adopted unfit paradigms to discover their personal God-given blueprint by shifting them from what they can do to what they were created to do. Pastor Dan resides in Ft. Worth, TX and has been married for 17 years and he and his wife Shasa have one daughter, Acacia.
