Connect with the Pastor

Lead Pastor

Daniel Childs

Our Lead Pastor, Daniel Childs, lives in South Durham with his wife, Kirsten, and children Caleb and Lydia. Daniel grew up in Chapel Hill, went to NC State for undergrad, then got his Master’s in theology from Duke. He enjoys watching sports (primarily the Wolfpack), working out, reading, watching Netflix, and spending time with the fam. If you’re interested, Daniel would love to connect with you over some good coffee or good food! The best way to reach him is by email: dchilds@universityumc.church.
