Dan Crabtree

dan crabtreeDan and Darlene Crabtree

Dan grew up at Immanuel Bible Church with his loving parents, Brent and Marty, and older brother Tim. He learned to love the church from a young age and began serving on staff at IBC as early as his high school years. But God did not save him from his sins and show him the beauty of Christ until after his prodigal college years. At the age of 23, Pastor Jesse sat down with Dan and explained to him the transforming power of the gospel, and the Lord called Dan to himself.

After his conversion, Dan began serving in the high school ministry in earnest, discipling students through music and through Scripture. He began to discern that the Lord was calling him into full-time vocational ministry and applied to seminary. During that season, God brought Darlene into Dan’s life. They dated and were married, then Dan began classes at The Master’s Seminary while serving as the Director of Jr. High Ministry at IBC.

After moving out to California in pursuit of his seminary degree, Dan and Darlene moved back to Northern Virginia in 2018 so that Dan could serve on staff as the College Ministry Director at IBC. Shortly thereafter, the Lord gifted Dan and Darlene with a baby boy, Daniel.

Dan completed his Masters of Divinity degree in May 2019, was ordained as the Associate Pastor of College Ministry in September of that year, and continues to serve in the college ministry with his wife. They are passionate about bringing the hope of Jesus and his gospel to college campuses in our area and to see college students discipled to love and serve Christ and his church.
