Chaplain Daniels, a native of Detroit, Michigan, graduated from Norfolk State University with a Bachelor Degree in Instrumental Music Education in 2004, from Strayer University with a Master of Business Administration in 2008 and from Andrews University with a Master of Divinity in Theological Studies in 2016. Chaplain Daniels is also a member of the United States Navy’s Chaplain Candidate Program and is preparing to serve as a Commissioned Officer in the Chaplain Corps.
Chaplain Daniels is new to the Seventh-day Adventist Education System, but he has prior experience as a High School Band Director and an extensive career in adult education and training. He is excited to be working in this field and hopes to accomplish two things in the coming school year: 1) Encourage students to have the confidence to be completely themselves, in relationship with God; 2) Give students the tools necessary to be competent in their search for answers about God and from God, through the Word of God.
Chaplain Daniels has been married for seven years, to Mrs. Danita Daniels, formerly Danita Fowler. Chaplain Daniels is very excited to work with the students, faculty and staff of the Oakwood Adventist Academy. He looks forward to serving the community, shaping the lives of the students and helping them frame their relationship with God, through His Word.
