Our Director


My name is Dan Herod and I have been working with 6th-12th grade students since 2000. I believe every student matters. My family and I currently reside in Amherst, Wisconsin. When I’m not directing Youth Alive, you will find me spending time with my family, out riding my road bike, serving on the local volunteer fire department, and doing the things that bring me life.

I consider my personal faith in Jesus Christ to be a “game changer.” Without it, I know I would be a very different person in a very different place. I owe everything I have to the One who gave everything for me.

Thank you for making the time to learn a little about me. I hope and pray that you experience the best life possible.

Because Every Student Matters,

Dan Herod
