Danny Davis has been the Senior Pastor at Mount Hermon Baptist Church since November 2006.
Danny graduated from The University of the Cumberlands (formerly Cumberland College) in Williamsburg, Kentucky with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and History / Political Science. He also earned a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina and a Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Theology from Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina.
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Danny grew up in Williamsburg, Kentucky. A former banker, he has been a pastor since 1985, previously serving churches in Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia. He also has a heart for world missions, having led or participated in mission trips to Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cuba, Greece, Haiti, Honduras, Poland, Russia, Tanzania, and the United Kingdom.
Danny and his wife Sandy were high school sweethearts and have been married since 1978. They have one son (Jordan), a daughter-in-law (Melinda), and a granddaughter (Ella) who live in Washington, D.C.
"Sandy and I enjoy doing mission work and interacting with people of other cultures. At home, we share living space with a sweet little pooch named Chloe (a Brittany mix). We’re fans of Kentucky Wildcat basketball (Go Big Blue!) and major league baseball. We also enjoy watching classic films via TCM or Netflix. I’m a student of history—especially presidential—and a collector of political campaign memorabilia. My musical tastes are eclectic, ranging from Bluegrass to the Beatles. On weekdays, you’ll often find me having lunch at Village’s Pizza. But if you really want to be my friend, please know that I love pecan pie, carrot cake, and potatoes just about any way you can fix ‘em."
