Dr. Dan Wokaty placed his trust in Christ in 1990. He later attended Bob Jones University to study business and then switched to a missions major with a Spanish minor after surrendering to preach in 1993. He then pursued a master’s degree to better equip himself to train Mexicans for service to the Lord. Dan and Opal were married in 1997, and in 2001 they were commissioned by Iglesia Bautista de la Fe (Greenville, SC) to serve in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, at Ebenezer Bible College and Seminary (IPES). They served at IPES until 2018. At the college, Opal taught Music Theory and Piano, and helped develop the college's music program. Dan taught over a dozen courses at the college and served as academic dean for seven years. After receiving his Doctorate of Pastoral Theology from BJU in 2014, Dan became the seminary dean at IPES and created a Master’s in Teaching Bible degree program to equip Mexicans to teach in Bible colleges.
In 2018, Dan created a ministry under MGMI called "TEAM Mobile Seminary," which is described as “Great Commission church planting through equipping pastors in Latin America to train their countrymen.” The Wokatys relocated to SC, from where Dan travels throughout Latin America to provide theological and pedagogical training for pastors and helps them set up training facilities so they can train the next generation of leaders from within their country. He also teaches online for many Spanish-speaking Christian institutions throughout Latin America. In 2023, Dan became MGMI’s fourth General Director.
