Dan serves churches in a variety of ways, including worship leading and speaking, as well as branded comedy and family outreach events.


Beyond all the events I get to be a part of, my first passion and calling since I was a teenager has been leading worship. Big or small settings, hyped or hidden, I love seeing God’s people simply and honestly connect with their creator using music. It is has been my joy being a part of that in people’s lives for years now, and I’d love to come be a part of it in your context as well.


In the past few years, teaching worship teams and leading worship has also led me to speaking to congregations about worship. The response has been awesome. Sometimes we all need to be reminded of why we do what we do.

“Dan expressed everything I ever wanted to convey to my team members in just a few short and engaging hours. We left feeling revitalized, encouraged, and stretched out of our comfort zone!”
– A Church Music Director

Dan has a definite teaching gift to impart 20+ years of worship ministry wisdom. He is able to speak to a wide range of practical and spiritual subjects surrounding leading people in worship, heart attitudes, arranging and leading a band and singers, as well as important tech elements, in a way that can be revolutionary for a team.

Dan can tailor a workshop to your fit your specific team’s needs and help you get where you want to go. Sometimes an “outside voice” saying exactly what you’ve said all along is what your team needs to coalesce around the idea!


Together, Dan and Christian comedian Leland Klassen, have developed several comedy & music events including AMUsing, (shown to the side) A fun Couples Night Out and a Christmas carols and comedy event. All feature a unique interwoven blend of music and comedy like you’ve never seen before and all serve as great outreach opportunities!

Acclaimed Canadian-born worship leader and singer/songwriter Dan Macaulay, is a GMA Canada Covenant Award winner and nine-time nominee, with songs being sung by churches and played on radio around the world; but his passion is simply seeing churches and individual believers grow in worship, in both song and action, as a response to God’s goodness.

As a pastor for 8 years, and having led worship in venues across Canada, the U.S., and internationally for 20 years; Dan now takes his considerable pastoral and worship-leading experience with him on the road serving churches of all shapes and sizes, blessing them, and encouraging them in their worship.

With a mix of musical and teaching gifts, Dan believes in serving local pastors, helping them to ‘move the ball forward’ in their vision for growth in worship at their church; meeting churches where they’re at and taking baby steps forward; endeavoring to inspire and deposit something that lasts beyond one weekend visit.

Author of the song “Amazing”, Dan’s songs have gone ahead of him around the world; and his newest worship album “From You For You” is continuing the trend. “From You For You”, is inspired by Romans 11:36. Dan says: “Everything we have comes from Him, passes through our hands, and is ultimately meant to be used to bring Him glory… I think that sums up what worship is: More than singing, it’s taking our gifts, our talents, our day-to-day life, and stewarding it all for His glory. It’s returning it to Him with interest.”

What Dan finds himself returning to the Lord is considerable and growing. “From You For You” has received five GMA Canada Covenant Award nominations (Canada’s Dove Awards) including “2012 Praise & Worship Album of the Year”. Dan’s song “In Awe” was also named a finalist in the 2011 “John Lennon Song Writing Competition” while two songs from the album have been featured in Worship Leader Magazine’s “Song DISCovery” program.

As one of the top Canadians consistently charting on Canadian Christian radio, Dan has six #1 radio singles (CanCon) to his name so far and has begun making in-roads into the U.S. as well. CCM Magazine called Dan “One of those guys you may not have heard of…but you should!” Worship Leader Magazine gave the album “From You For You” a 4 star review saying “Macaulay’s sense of hook is matched only by an obvious heart that constantly reaches out to the Father”.

“Leading worship these days is better than ever,” he says. “What an exciting time in history we live in. I believe God is using the uncertain to heighten our awareness of the One certain thing that we desperately need more than ever—Him. I’m just helping people see that, make the connection, and turn their focus on Him to carry them through.”
