Who is Dan "Southpaw" Smith?

Some say he's a dynamic speaker. His mom thinks he's mildly insightful & funny. At the very least, he cracks himself up.

Don't just take our word for it

Pastor Dan Smith absolutely rocked the house at the event! 🌟 His message was not only inspiring but also super relatable. He kept the crowd engaged from start to finish with his energetic delivery and genuine passion. Can't wait for the next time he graces the stage


Dan absolutely wowed us at our Men's Retreat in Alaska! 🏔️ Words can't do justice to how incredible he was. His ability to connect on a deep level left a lasting impact on everyone there. Plus, his humor and approachability made the experience even more memorable. Can't recommend him enough! 

Dan Smith, Lead Minister of Momentum Christian Church (Greater Cleveland) drops stories, parables, insights, challenges and a lot of humor about being a Sending Church. In 2005, Smith led the team that started Momentum. On paper, Momentum’s just a regular church. For their first nine years, they averaged 250 people or less. But the numbers don’t tell the whole story. In obedience to God’s vision for multiplication, the church has created a strong “sending culture” to help reach more broken people through new churches. Sending Church tells the story of Momentum through the lens of multiplication, but it doesn’t stop there. With brutal honesty, Smitty shares the difficulties and rewards of giving before you can afford to give, and sending before you can afford to send.
