Rev. Garrett is one who is sold out for the cause of Jesus Christ; a member of the Greater Open Door Missionary Baptist Church where he served as Youth Minister for several years. Twenty-one years ago, under the leadership of his late father, Pastor Wilbur Garrett, Rev. Daniel J. Garrett began preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. For 18 years and counting Rev. Garrett and his lovely wife, Zanyta, have lived in holy matrimony.
Rev. Garrett’s main goal is to reach out to the unsaved, exalt the name of Jesus through intricate melodies and an energizing spirit by sharing God’s Word with those who do not know Jesus as their personal Savior. His prayer is that his stand for integrity will be shown in all of his endeavors by living the life that he ministers about.
Rev. Garrett is a lifelong resident of Illinois, graduated in 1994 from Lincoln College in Lincoln, IL. and is recognized in many parts of the country as a preacher’s musician; known for his ability to usher in the Holy Spirit. He has worked with many choirs in the state of Illinois including:
