    Minister of Music

    Daniel Ng has been a part of the music ministry of FBC Lindale since August of 2011.  Daniel has served as accompanist, Interim Worship Leader, and is currently our Minister of Music,   Originally from Georgetown, KY, Daniel's calling to sacred music began in 1998 playing piano for Cane Run Baptist Church in Lexington, KY. Although very traditional in nature, exposure to contemporary worship has led him to love all of the several musical channels that praise God. Narrowing it down to five songs, his favorites are "Revelation Song", "There is Something About That Name", "Be Still My Soul", "Great I Am" and "I Shall Not Want". Outside of leading in worship, Daniel loves to go home for a home cooked meal, enjoy the outdoors, and he bleeds blue for “Your Kentucky Wildcats”.

    Dan would love to answer any questions you may have about our worship services or tell you more about how you can be involved in our music ministry.
