Nashville, Tenn.: The General Commission on Communication announced today that Daniel Krause of Denver has been named top executive of United Methodist Communications, effective June 8, following a vote of the Commission today.
Krause is currently a candidate for ordination as an elder in the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church. He has attended Iliff School of Theology since 2013, and has completed over two-thirds of the required credits for a Masters of Divinity degree. Krause has spent the past two years at Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver as a pastoral intern supporting evangelism and new member outreach.
Bishop Sally Dyck, president of the Commission, said Krause was chosen from a field of more than 500 candidates because of his strong management experience and wealth of knowledge related to communications strategy, branding, messaging and marketing, combined with his theological education and ties to The United Methodist Church.
“Dan has had an impressive career to-date and the members of the Commission felt that the leadership skills and communications expertise he brings will be a great benefit to continuing to move United Methodist Communications forward,” said Bishop Dyck. “We are excited to welcome him on board.”
Krause comes with more than 11 years of experience in management at Frontier Airlines. Krause was most recently Vice-President of Marketing and Customer Experience, responsible for managing all corporate branding, marketing, advertising, social media and corporate communications strategy. He also directed all consumer messaging and managed the day-to-day operation of Frontier’s Reservations Call Centers and the Customer Relations and Customer Experience teams.
"It is an honor to join United Methodist Communications and to help share the story of God's work through The United Methodist Church in the world,” said Krause. “I look forward to working with the distinguished team in place as we face opportunities to keep communication timely and relevant for a global church."
Krause is a graduate of Boston University and earned both a Masters of Business Administration and a Masters of Arts in Education Policy from Stanford University.
