ADRN BOARD

Daniel Geraci  |  President
ADRN Executive Director and Founder

Nearly a life-long Austinite, Daniel Geraci founded the Austin Disaster Relief Network in March 2009. Inspired by the Lord while sponsoring two surviving families from Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Daniel was given a vision to build a network of greater Austin Churches who would set aside theological differences and mobilize, organize and train together to meet the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of those impacted by disaster. To develop ADRN, Daniel leaned on God's handiwork in building a Christ-centered, prayer-centered core team of volunteers who were passionate to see the body of Christ unite together under one vision, one purpose and one mission.

Daniel lives in Cedar Park, Texas, with his wife, Allison and two daughters. He serves as a back-up bass player on the worship team at Expression Church.
