Pastor Daniel Torres

Lead Pastor at Radiant Church

He grew up the youngest of five in East New York in a complicated single parent home. At the age of sixteen, his life changed forever when he gave his heart to the Lord at a prayer meeting at the Brooklyn Tabernacle. What he experienced could not be compared to any other experience. He felt God, he felt love, he felt acceptance. Within the last twenty plus years, Pastor Dan has faithfully served the Body of Christ. He is known as “the people’s pastor” because of his humble, genuine and gentle nature. He is now honored to pastor Radiant Church at this point of his faith journey and is excited to see what the Lord will accomplish through this ministry.

Aileen Torres

Bible Teacher and the wife of Pastor Daniel Torres

She grew up in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Although she was raised in a Christian home, Aileen rebelled against her parents and the Lord. Her rebellion led to her leaving her home multiple times, a juvenile record for violence, alcohol abuse, drug use, and involvement in many toxic relationships all before the age of 16. Her life was heading down a dark downward spiral at a rapid speed but in 1997, during her junior year of high school, the Lord intervened and she was radically saved. She is now committed to teaching about true freedom from sin and shame that Jesus offers to all.



In his down time Pastor Dan enjoys spending quality time with his wife and his daughters. He also enjoys playing basketball, bike riding, and hiking. Aileen enjoys cooking, decorating, reading, spending time with her family, and catching up with old friends.

Both Pastor Dan and Aileen together share the joy of raising two beautiful girls, Madison Grace and Sydney Ryan.
