Pastor Dan has served as Pastor at Xenia Grace Chapel since 1980. He is a graduate of Ohio Christian University. Dan and his wife Pam have two grown daughters (one married and one living at home finishing a degree.) He has served for many years as coordinator of church planting in the church denomination and as Assistant District Superintendent.
In his free time Pastor Dan enjoys such hobbies as restoration of his 1937 Ford Coupe, visiting car shows, and classic vehicle swap meets, enjoying sports, and auctions.
Pastor Dan feels it is a privilege to be the Pastor of Xenia Grace, and to have put down roots in Xenia, while raising their family. In many ways, he feels his ministry has just begun because there are so many people to reach out to and show God's love.

My name is Chris Berlean and I hail from the great city of Canton, Ohio. I was born and raised in the famous town of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and consider myself a loyal football fan to the Green Bay Packers! Actually, though I am quite fond of the Packers, I consider myself an ever greater fan of baseball and my loyalty reigns with the greatest baseball team to ever play the game...The New York Yankees!
In all seriousness, I do love sports, however, there is nothing I love more than Christ and bringing hearts closer to Him. I am married to my wonderful wife, Kellie, of 12.5 years. We have three beautifully spirited daughters, Emma Grace (11.5), Abigail Faith (10) and Olivia Hope (5).
I completed my degree in Youth Ministry in 2004, just two weeks before Kellie and were married. We spent the first few years of our marriage leading worship and youth ministry together. My most recent ministry opportunity, lead me to working alongside a great man, to assist in his television ministry. Our family moved to Miamisburg in July of this year, as Kellie received the role as Principal of an elementary in Dayton.
For the past year, I have truly felt the Lord calling us back into full-time ministry and believe God has called our family here to Xenia Grace Chapel to minister and serve alongside each of you. We are blessed with the opportunity and look forward to everything the Lord has planned in His journey.
Kellie, Chris, Emma Grace, Abigail Faith and Olivia Hope.
I have been in child care for over 17 years. I began working in child care by operating a licensed daycare out of my home for six years. I then continued working in child care as room a lead for child development centers for the military. During this time I received my certificate in Early Childhood Education and then pursued my Bachelors of Science in Management.
I have been married to my husband, Kent, for over 23 years and we have two wonderful children; Zacherie (22) and Brittany (20).
Romans 8:37 says that "we are more than conquerors through him who loves us." When we feel like life is attacking us God reminds us that he created us to be conquerors.
