Danny Parker, City Director for Pittsburgh, PA

Danny joined the CLC staff in 2010 as Pittsburgh City Director following ten years as the Director of Men’s Discipleship & Ministry at Orchard Hill Church in Wexford, PA. As a Pastor with the calling of "building men" into the “full measure of Christ” he used CLC as the primary springboard and teaching tool to help accomplish that reality. Fifty-seven CLC Groups later … near 600 men through one church  … that’s a God movement! In the process, other churches heard about what God was doing in the men’s lives at his church and as a result he was able to teach and train more than fifteen other churches to use the CLC curriculum and discipleship model for their men. Over 250 CLC groups in the Pittsburgh area and beyond are the results of what started at Orchard Hill.

Danny came to Orchard Hill following twelve years as a Special Agent with Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company and the Bill Cochran General Agency out of Nashville, TN. During that time with NML his sons: Jordan (US Navy Seabee) and Raley (General Manager for Chick-fil-A) finished their studies at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. Prior to NML, Danny was a Pastor in the Presbyterian Church. He attained his Masters of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA … at which time Anna, his wife, received her BSN from Emory University School of Nursing. Anna currently serves as a Hospice Nurse. The Parker’s have been married for forty-five years!
Prior to Seminary, Danny was on the Young Life Staff as Area Director for twelve years in Augusta, GA and Johnson City, TN. He joined the YL staff following his and Anna’s graduation from the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
Danny graduated from Young High School in South Knoxville, his fourth High School. It was at that time through the ministry of Young Life that he came to know Jesus. Prior to that time … well, that does not really matter … because Christ has made all the difference in this “jar of clay!”
