After college, Dan Herron (MDiv ’11) went on staff with Great Commission Ministries (GCM) at the University of Illinois for five years. When it became clear that a lifetime of vocational ministry lay ahead, he pursued and eventually finished his Master of Divinity at Covenant Theological Seminary. He was approved for a church-planting position and is now working in tandem with another Covenant Seminary graduate, Brad Tubbesing (MDiv ’07), who is starting an RUF at Indiana University. MNA and RUM have done other such dual-plants, such as with Bart Moseman (MDiv ‘00) at City Life Church and Chad Brewer (MDiv ’00) at the University of Minnesota, in the Twin City region.

Dan, thank you for telling me about your new work. Did I get the background and introduction right?
Mostly. After I graduated, Erica and I got married one week later. We moved to St. Louis (the first time) so Erica could do grad school at Washington University. I taught high school at Hazelwood East. That first summer, I did a summer project with Great Commission Ministries in Estes Park, CO in 2001. We went on staff with GCM in 2002. Now we’re involved in a dual plant—RUF and PCA church—in the Bloomington, IN area.
