Mr. Dan O’Leary, Assistant Pastor – Minister of Education

Daniel was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. At the age of eighteen he trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He attended Florida Bible College and graduated in 1974 with a Theology major. In the summer of 1978, he was asked to join the school staff of Grace Christian Academy (formerly known as Lewisville Christian Academy – the Lab School of Accelerated Christian Education). In 1988, Daniel was asked to take the leadership role as principal. It has been an honor to serve the Lord in Grace Baptist Church and Grace Christian Academy for over thirty years.

My wife, Kim (Wilhoite), and I have been married thirty years and we have a daughter, Shannon, and a son, Ryan. Shannon graduated from Crown College of the Bible in Powell, Tennessee, with a degree in Deaf Missions. Shannon and her husband Daniel Hill were married on June 21, 2014. The couple is residing in Tennessee. Ryan moved back to Flower Mound after attending Master’s Baptist College in Fargo, North Dakota. Ryan and his fiancé Barbara Burkholder are engaged to be married on October 24, 2014.

God has been faithful to provide my every need. My life verses are Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
