(10-12-20) In 1969 Dane felt a call to the ministry.  In 1975 Dane started seminary at Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, IN and that fall did his first concert.  He has been traveling, ministering, and entertaining at churches, conferences, conventions, fairs, festivals, campgrounds, restaurants and banquets, as well as on radio and television ever since.  He also traveled with a gospel quartet for approximately four years.   In 2006, Dane was honored with an invitation to sing at the “Pageant of Peace,” an annual event held at the National Christmas Tree on the ellipse near the Whitehouse in Washington, DC.  

In 2001 Dane was able to take another step in his music career by stepping out as a full time singer-recording artist.  He now travels throughout the United States doing approximately one hundred concerts and averaging about 13,000 miles a year.  He has sixteen recordings and 2 live concert DVDs to his credit.  His music recordings are a mixture of music genre with most of them being Southern Gospel.  Believing that laughter lightens the heart, Dane released an all comedy project, “Laughin’ Time,” and with his traveling to our nation’s capitol for Christmas,   2006, released a project, “Live at Christmas.”   He has a big band project, a variety CD, and a Patriotic CD and DVD.  The list goes on “In The Garden,” “Amazing Grace,” and many others. His latest is a mixture of jazz and blue grass.   There is always something different to hear from beginning to end of his program.

Dane is a “real for sure auctioneer” and a growing part of his travels include auctioneering, entertaining, and emceeing for benefit functions.  He sells a lot of pies and cakes.  He was a real estate broker, and an instructor at the Reppert’s School of Auctioneering.  He was also a partner in Martin and Bailey Auction Realty in Fort Wayne, IN.
