Dan Newburg is excited about sharing the life-transforming love of God to Devine and beyond. He began to serve as pastor of FBC Devine in January 2020, after the Lord called Dan out of a secular career, which most recently saw him leading software development teams. Dan graduated from Logsdon Seminary with a Master of Divinity with a pastoral ministry concentration in May 2020. He has been admitted to the Doctor of Ministry program at Baylor's Truett Seminary.

He was raised in South Texas, a graduate of Natalia ISD. He also received his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. After Christ, Dan’s greatest love is for his wife Yvette and his daughters, Bethany and Lily. He also enjoys traveling and reading, along with conversations over a cup of coffee.
