Dan Schaeffer was a pastor for  twenty years in Southern California, before moving to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in California.  Dan is the author of eight books, numerous Bible study guides,  and hundreds of articles. Feeling God's call to a full time writing and speaking ministry, Dan resigned his pastorate and moved to Solvang, California content to write and speak full time. But while doing pulpit supply for Shoreline Community Church in Santa Barbara the Holy Spirit led Him and the church into a new and unexpected relationship. He now writes as well as pastors Shoreline Community Church.

Dan came to know Jesus as his personal savior while he was a young man in High School. He experienced three broken homes by the time he was sixteen years old. Three fathers professed their love for him, and then left never to return. But he found in his Heavenly Father the perfect unconditional love of God and responded to His offer of grace.

Feeling the call of God to pastoral ministry, Dan graduated from High School and entered Grace Bible Institute in Long Beach, graduating with a Bachelors in Bible. He then entered Talbot School of Theology (Biola University) receiving a Masters of Divinity degree. Dan was a singles pastor in Grace Bible Church in Mission Viejo for a number of years while he was attending seminary.  Upon graduation, Dan started Foothills Evangelical Free Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, California with his wife and two other couples. For the next 13 years, the church grew and added two more full time pastors. After several years of prayer, Dan followed the leading of God to move into a full time Christian writing and speaking ministry, resigning from his church in July of 2000 and moving to the Central Coast. Two years later he again followed God's leading into a pastoral role at Shoreline Community Church in Santa Barbara. An award winning writer, Dan's articles have appeared in Reader's Digest, A 3rd Serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and a Reader's Digest anthology, entitled,"Life Touched with Wonder."

Dan was a frequent contributor to Moody Magazine, and writes on assignment for ten Christian magazines and ministries.  His work has appeared regularly in over 31 different Christian magazines and periodicals, in many different countries and languages. After the September 11th tragedy, Dan was commissioned to write an article for an evangelistic booklet to be distributed in New York called Remembrance: Fallen but not forgotten. His article was entitled "It only takes a Moment." This booklet became the program for the Firefighter memorial in Yankee Stadium and is now distributed in many places. Over 5 million of these booklets were published in many different languages to date.
