  • Dan Abell

    Assistant to the Pastor

    Dan is a Texas-born sojourner in the Northeastern US that finds the jug-handles of New Jersey to be a bit perplexing. While serving in the United States Marine Corps ('09-'13) the Lord used a year-long deployment in Afghanistan to direct his attention to the word of the Lord. In his final year of service, Dan decided to reenter civilian life in pursuit of an undetermined facet of ministry. Shortly after making the move to Penndel, PA to begin taking classes at Cairn University in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies, he began attending GraceWay Bible Church. He was blessed with the opportunity to get involved in a number of ministries wherein he was able to rub shoulders with the people of GraceWay until August of 2015, when he travelled to Jerusalem for a semester of studying abroad. Dan had already fallen in love with Koine Greek in his studies at Carin, but the time in Israel would create an identical effect with Biblical Hebrew. Upon returning from Israel, Dan agreed to join the GraceWay staff starting in May of 2016 to serve as Assistant to the Pastor. If you would like to contact Dan, you may e-mail him at dabell@gracewaybc.org.

    Pastor Mitar was born and raised in New Jersey. He was a former Rutgers football player where he had the success of participating in several bowl games and part of a top 25 Rutgers Scarlet Knights program. He participated in several college ministries that really drove his passion for serving the Lord.

In 2011 the opportunity was available for him to enter into the ministry full-time. He has been seeking to drive into the young people of the church a passion and love for Christ that would not only shape their lives but also their eternities. He desires for them to make their lives count for Christ. The ministry is based upon James 4:14, "What is your life? You are mist that appears for a little and then vanishes." Mitar enjoys working out, building things, playing with his son Mitar spending time with his wife Megan, helping with his new daughter Annalyse, and cheering on the Scarlet Knights football team from the sidelines.
