Dayne Hartwell was born in Chicago, Illinois. When he was eight years old, his family moved to Brown Deer, Wisconsin. While attending Brown Deer High School, Dayne felt a calling upon his life to serve the Lord which led him to North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dayne graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Children's Ministry.
After graduation, Dayne ministered at New Life Community Church in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for two years. Sensing God's movement for his life again, he became the Children's Pastor here at West Layton Assembly.
Dayne is said to be a miracle baby, having been born two months premature, but only had to spend two weeks in an incubator. God's blessing was upon his life from the beginning. Dayne and Nicole have been married since May 31, 2014. He and Nicole are a blessing to the children of our church.
