Daniel Nelson, originally from Michigan, came to Chattanooga in 2012 to be apart of The Mission Chattanooga and to be closer to his girlfriend, Laney (now wife). After being in Chattanooga for a couple of years, he realized that he wanted to make music for the rest of his life and knew that he wanted to serve the Church with it. So him and his family spent 1 year at Hillsong International Leadership College in Sydney, AU, and returned in 2016 to begin working in the community.
Daniel, his wife, Laney, and their two kids (Otto and Ida) live downtown Chattanooga, TN., where Daniel works as worship leader for the Mission Chattanooga at their City Center Chapel, plays in his alternative rock band called Focus Fox, and produces and records other bands and artists.
