Danny & Liz Tuxhorn


Youth Pastors - Transfer and The Link

Danny was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado but began calling NWA home when he came to JBU for college. He has served in Transfer since the fall of 2012 and served in many different roles in the ministry. He and his wife, Liz, love doing life with teenagers and are passionate about seeing young people develop their relationship with Jesus. When he's not at church, you can typically find Danny rooting for his favorite sports teams even though they stink.

Liz is the type of person that seeks after adventure with her whole heart. Her current adventure has her plugged into the women's ministry at CLC along with working beside her husband in the student ministry. She sees the value that the Lord has put on every person individually and strives to seek that out in people.

Liz understands that her purpose is to show people the joy of the Lord and allow them the space to feel comfortable and experience God’s unconditional love for them. She is happily married to Danny, a Youth Pastor at Christian Life Cathedral, and you can find her most days outside enjoying God’s creation, or sitting on her porch with a cup of coffee and some knitting needles.
