Pastor Dan Vera was born and raised in the San Jose area. He is a graduate of Southern Arizona Bible College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Christian Ministries. He has been part of the CWC family since 1988, when he came to Manteca to work with his former Youth Pastor, Steve Perea. Since joining Christian Worship Center, Pastor Dan has possessed the anointing to start ministries from nothing and establish lasting fruit as a result. This gift was never more evident than when He and his family left the comforts of Christian Worship Center of Manteca to found and pastor Christian Worship Center of San Jose, in April of 2000.

Pastor Dan is known for his humorous yet passionate & practical proclamation of the Word of God. He will stir your emotions, challenge your intellect but most importantly bring your will to a point of decision.
