  • Alan Starner (2nd Term September 2022 through August 2025)

    Alan was born and raised in Mechanicsburg and began attending Daybreak Easter of 2003.

    It was that day that he discovered a life-changing journey with Jesus and asked him to be

    his Lord and Savior! His first impressions were that it was an environment he felt

    comfortable in. He recalls always being greeted warmly by people. He then heard

    music that resonated with him. That, combined with messages that were relevant,

    Bible-focused, and left him with “application steps,” gave him a home where he knew he

    could grow and experience God’s goodness for his life, alongside others on the journey.

    His favorite thing about Daybreak is that we’re a family on a mission who is willing to listen

    for God’s direction and make decisions to further His Kingdom. Alan has served in various

    ministry roles at Daybreak over the years, including worship leader, Home Group leader,

    Short-Term Trip member, and he has previously served as an elder on our leadership team.
