Pastor Danny Hand answered God’s call to ministry at the age of 19 and walked away from his dream of playing college baseball to attend Christ for the Nations Institute. After he and his wife, Margaret, graduated from CFNI in 1992, they accepted a full time position as Youth Pastors at Wycoff Assembly of God in New Jersey. This full time Youth Pastor position afforded Pastor Danny and Margaret the experience of numerous mission trips to places like the Philippines, Jamaica, Malaysia and Singapore. They served faithfully in that position for 4 ½ years while expanding their family with a daughter and son. In 1997 Pastor Danny, Margaret, and their two young children packed up and moved to Las Vegas to pastor alongside Pastor Danny’s parents, Pastor Larry and Jeanette Hand at Christian City Church. In 2011, Pastor Danny and Margaret became the Senior Pastors at Celebration Church Las Vegas where they consistently encourage individuals to achieve their personal best as Christians and in life. Pastor Margaret’s love for Christ and heart of worship is evident in how she leads people into the presence of God, both on the worship team and with her wise counsel.
Pastor Danny and Margaret strongly believe that Christians are to be the “best of the best” – free from addictions and all forms of bondage. He’s a coach at heart who wants to pull God’s potential out everybody who want’s to train (be discipled). He is building and training a team of radical Christians who love God, His people, and have a heart for souls. Celebration’s mission is simply, to “Raise Up Champions” for Christ.
