Our retreat speaker is the central conference superintendent, Rev. Dr. Danny Martinez!

Reverend Danny Martinez was unanimously elected for a second term as superintendent of the Central Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church for the ministries found in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan (Upper Peninsula), Eastern Missouri and Wisconsin. He is the first superintendent in our denomination of Latino descent. His parents emigrated from Guatemala to the United States, moving to Chicago, IL.

Danny has served in a number of leadership roles, including worship, youth and lead pastor. He has also been a church planter and served as President of ALIPE (Latino Association of Covenant Churches in the US). Danny moved back to Chicago, IL, from San Diego, CA, in 2017.This was truly a call from the Lord to leave San Diego!

Pastor Danny is an accomplished musician with several CD’s in different genres of music including Latin Pop, Hard Rock, Contemporary Worship and Latin Groove. He recently released an album named “Colores,” which is available on all major streaming platforms.

Doctor Martinez is a graduate of C.H.E.T. (The Hispanic Center for Theological Studies, which serves Evangelical churches). He is also a graduate of Fuller Seminary with a Master of Divinity, and a Doctorate in Homiletics.

Danny has a sense of humor. He tells the truth in love, so laughing helps people better receive the message. Since Danny comes from a multicultural church, he really values church participation during sermons and sometimes he makes the congregation dance at no extra cost.

Danny has three children, Eric, Angelique and Alec. His children think he is old.
