Daniel L. Sonnenberg

Hi there! I’m Dan Sonnenberg, an American missionary, pastor and church musician.

I’m also the guy behind We Are His Workmanship (DanSonnenberg.com).

This website is representative of much of my life’s work.

I write about my missionary work in Latin America, theology, church life, church music and more.

And here I publish sermons I have preached as well as audio and video recordings of choral works I have conducted and solo-duo vocal works my wife, Beth, and I have recorded.
