Dan Woltmann grew up in the home of full time Christian school teachers. Although born in Michigan, Dan spent the majority of his early childhood in the Tallahassee, FL area and attended Aucilla Christian Academy, a satellite school at the time of North Florida Baptist Church and Christian School. His family moved just prior to his junior high years to serve at Bible Baptist Church and Christian Academy in Savannah, GA. Dan’s high school years were spent at Temple Heights Baptist Church and Christian Academy (Tampa, FL) where he graduated in June, 1985.
Dan was saved at the tender age of 5 years old. Throughout his childhood and teen years he was privileged to meet and to learn from many pillars of fundamentalism and outstanding preachers. It was from these men that he developed a strong conviction on the truth of God’s Word. Dan surrendered to preach at the age of 14; he preached his first sermon at the age of 16 to his youth group. During Dan’s senior year, Dr. Bill Rice III met with Dan about his future college plans. It was then that Dan decided to attend Pensacola Christian College as an evangelism major. Dan graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Evangelism in May, 1990.
