Daniel Fraats

Worship Leader

Daniel grew up attending Calvary after he and his family moved to Vandenberg Air Force Base in 2001. He was involved in music all throughout his educational career and decided to venture to Santa Barbara to attend Westmont College and further pursue music. He graduated in 2016 with his Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, and spent a year in Santa Barbara doing various jobs, both music and non-music related, before being called back home to Lompoc to serve in the music ministry at Calvary. He married his wife, Kaylee, in the summer of 2023. She also grew up attending Calvary, and they connected after getting to know each other better through the church young adult group and serving together on the worship team. Kaylee continues to joyfully offer her piano and singing talents to the worship team regularly, and she and Daniel both feel incredibly blessed to share in that. They enjoy seeing how music can move a community to worship God!
