Daniel Pratt

Daniel Pratt – Worship Ministry

Daniel has been writing and playing music since he was 12 when he was given a guitar on Christmas morning. He entered the music scene leading worship at a former youth conference, Acquire The Fire and from there became the worship leader at his local church for seven years. Since then, he’s been using his personal experiences of God, love, and the journey of life, to inspire his dream to keep pursuing the music that makes him come alive. 
 Daniel has always stayed busy chasing after all of his passions, but his true purpose is realized when he’s singing songs captivating the listener through convicting lyrics and catchy melodies. Both the songs he writes and the worship he leads invites others on a journey of discovering the complexities of the heart, mind, and soul. 
Daniel lives in Panama City Beach with his wife Jenn and their four children; Jace, Livi, Ellie, and their brand new baby boy, David Paul Pratt.
