Dr. Daniel R. Albert

Daniel Albert, DMiss., (www.danielreedalbert.com) first went to a particular East Asian country in 1994 where he first focused on language acquisition. Living in community from that point on and contextualization through understanding culture and learning language, drove Daniel to desire all three of these moving forward in his ministry. Returning to this East Asian country after graduate school, Daniel married his wife, a national of that country, and they proceeded to live in community with Christians in their neighborhood for the next eight years while setting about the ministry the Lord called them to within their context. Back in the U.S., Daniel now runs a business, Bless Enterprises, which allows him to continue ministry, online, with that original context. Daniel teaches synchronous Bible courses with an online university to Christian workers in that context. Daniel serves on the Executive Board of AVM (Alliance for Vulnerable Mission), an organization whose mission is to promote language learning and living off of local resources for foreign missionaries.
