Daniel Ritchie was born without arms and spent the majority of his life being told that he was a hopeless mistake and woefully insufficient to lead a full life. But, God used a preacher to share with Daniel just how much God loved him. The preacher explained that he was not a mistake, but rather “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139) and it was there, at the age of 15, that Daniel accepted Christ as his Lord & Savior.
One year after getting saved, Daniel submitted his life to full time ministry and God began to open doors for him to preach across the South. Close to two decades have passed since Jesus radically changed Daniel’s life, and he has served on staff at a camp, as a student pastor, conference speaker and writer.
Today, Daniel is based in Charlotte, North Carolina and he speaks for churches, schools, camps and conferences all over the US and overseas. As a writer, he have been published in well-known outlets like Fox News, Desiring God, The Gospel Coalition, For The Church, Church Leaders and Rapzilla. He is a proud husband and father of two amazing kids, and also the author of the newly released book, My Affliction for His Glory.
