Danyel is originally from Southern Illinois and moved to Tennessee to attend college at Austin Peay State University where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations and a Master’s in Corporate Communication. While at APSU, she served on the BCM leadership team, and it was through mission and serving opportunities there that God began to grow her love for the nations.
Danyel participated in Nehemiah Teams during the summers of 2018 and 2019, serving in Romania and Zimbabwe. God used these summers to change her career objective, leading her towards ministry and taught her more about her role in finishing the Great Commission. After finishing her master’s, she started seminary classes in 2021.
She began working with Nehemiah Teams in August of 2022. Danyel now lives in Lebanon, Tennessee with her husband, Christian Townson. They were married in September 2022 and are excited to begin serving together and see where God might take them as they mobilize students and church members in the Middle Tennessee area!
