Daniel Lai, Young Life San Francisco

Daniel has been on staff with Young Life since 1999 and with Young Life San Francisco since 2014.

He and his family (wife Becky and sons Drew and Henry) love being SF residents and Christ’s representatives in the City’s public schools. Having grown up in the Bay Area as a fan of the Warriors, Giants, and 49ers, Daniel coaches high school football and basketball as ways to combine his two passions: sports and youth ministry.

His dream is that every teenager in San Francisco would have the opportunity to meet Jesus, and he’s passionate about connecting people at Reality SF and other churches to students in our local schools. To learn how to support Daniel’s ministry, please email him.
