at Daniel Ministries understand the importance
of pastors getting to know anyone that may be ministering
to their congregation. Daniel himself pastored for
10 years, so he knows fully well the responsibility that
you, as a pastor, have to ensure that anyone invited to
your church ministers in the power of the Holy Spirit, sensitive
to the needs of your flock.
The purpose of this website is to introduce you to Daniel
Rydstedt and the ministry he has been entrusted with.
We want to give you a brief history of his ministry, for
the life he has lived has contributed greatly to the depth
of the message he gives.
ministering musically part time on weekends during his years
at college and while he served as a Navy officer at the
Pentagon in Washington, D.C., Daniel began a full time concert
ministry in 1975, sharing his songs at churches, coffeehouses,
prisons and universities throughout the eastern half of
the United States.
the late 70’s, an insatiable hunger for the Word of God
resulted in a change of emphasis in Daniel’s ministry from
concerts that were evangelistic in nature to equipping and
inspiring the saints through dynamic Bible based teaching.
He taught at a weekly meeting in Maryland called Saturday
Night Celebration at which believers from several
area churches gathered together for anointed worship and
an extra “meal” of practical teaching.
1983 Daniel joined the staff of the nationwide Christian
radio talk show, Contact America, based on capitol
hill in Washington D.C. The next year, Daniel hosted
his own weekly half hour radio program called the Musinar
Radio Show which aired in the D.C., Baltimore and
Northern Virginia areas. This unique musical seminar
combined teaching with short clips from contemporary Christian
songs that illustrated the topic of the week.
1985 Daniel joined the pastoral staff of Baltimore Christian
Faith Center. Early on his work with the youth
gave him a real heart for the young people of this generation.
Working with senior pastor, John McCall, who has an amazing
healing and miracle ministry, gave Daniel a renewed compassion
for those that are sick and hurting. It was out of this
experience that Daniel wrote the book Gospills
For Your Healing- A Manual For Health and Healing.
Pastoring also put in his heart a strong desire to help
those in the body of Christ to fulfill their destiny and
be all that God has called them to be.
to the Midwest 10 years later, Daniel traveled to churches
throughout Missouri and Kansas teaching the Word of God.
Then a series of tragedies . . . a painful divorce and the
death of his younger sister, his mother and dad, caused
Daniel to take a sabbatical from ministry while he healed
and sought the Lord. It was during this time that
the Lord began to speak to him about how important it is
for the body of Christ to press in to really intimately
KNOW Jesus, and fulfill their destiny as His Bride in these
last days before He comes. The Lord showed him that
His people must know that their groom is looking for a people
that will fellowship with Him continually, walking in obedience
and purity in the midst of an ever-increasingly perverse
generation. During this time Daniel wrote several
books including Be
The Bride, vol. 4-How To Make Sure You Have “Made Yourself
Ready” When Your Groom Comes, which has impacted
Christians worldwide. A recent example is a letter
we received from Milton Sue of Oceanside, California who
