Danelle Radney – Part 1

Welcome back to Driven 4word: Influential Leaders Powered By God’s Will. Join us each month as we share the life story of an influential leader who humbled themselves to God’s plan for their life and embarked on a journey that only He could orchestrate.

The influential leader we will learn from this month is Danelle Radney. The oldest of three girls and the daughter of two parents in full-time ministry, Danelle’s early years in Detroit and Minneapolis were full of hands-on ministry opportunities and exposure to multiple cultural communities. From a young age, Danelle leaned into an innate drive to succeed and make a difference in the world, and while this helped open doors for her, it also caused her to realize that God’s way truly is the best way.
