Dan Funkhouser started a commercial and residential painting company in 1975 in the state of Oklahoma. The company moved to Kansas in 1987 , where it still presently operates as a painting and services company. Over the years, Dan has supervised the company's office staff, field employees, and sub-contractors to accomplish work in the areas of residential, commercial, multi-family, and government projects. Additionally, he is active in owning and managing multiple properties in Kansas and Missouri.
Dan is a licensed minister. He serves with his wife, Debbie, as directors of the marriage and counseling ministry at Antioch Church in Overland Park, KS. Dan and Debbie met as high school sweethearts and have been married for 45 years. They are blessed with two grown children, their spouses, and five grandchildren. One of Dan's greatest joys is the gathering together of his family every Sunday.
Dan's interest in IHB began with his personal friendship with the founders, Harold and Lana Patterson. After multiple trips to Honduras where he experienced being part of a team that provided shelter to families in the most desperate circumstances, he accepted a position on the Board of IHB. He currently serves as Chaplin and in support roles to other disciplines of the organization. It is his privilege to serve this humanitarian organization by building homes, schools, and medical buildings, with the goal of meeting immediate needs for health and safety and changing families for generations.
