Rev. Daniel Wood

Recovery Pastor

After a 20-year battle with addiction and since finding sobriety from his addiction himself in 2010, Pastor Daniel has had a sincere heart for helping others find that same sobriety as well as recovery from their own hurts, habits, and hang-ups through Christ Jesus. Pastor Daniel, along with his wife Briana and their two children, Damian and Dakayla, moved to South Carolina in August 2018 from Albuquerque, NM where he served as Recovery Pastor. Upon moving to South Carolina, he became the Lead Pastor of New Life Church of the Nazarene in New Ellenton, SC until he began feeling a renewed call to help those in need of that same recovery. Pastor Daniel has been the Recovery Pastor at Aiken Ebenezer Nazarene since January 2024.
