Christian Care Senior Living Communities Chief Operating Officer Ken Carpenter is pleased to announce that Dan Borkenhagen will be moving from the position of Senior Living Counselor at Christian Care Senior Living Community-Allen to Executive Director, effective March 1, 2016.

Borkenhagen has been with Christian Care for approximately three and a half years. He started out as a Senior Living Counselor at the Mesquite community, working at Greenway Village in Retirement Living.

Borkenhagen grew up in White Bear Lake, Minn. and imagined a lifelong career in the ministry. He attended Concordia University in St. Paul, Minn. followed by seminary at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. Borkenhagen and his wife, Jessica, moved to the Allen area in 2006 when he received his first job in the ministry as an Associate Pastor at Messiah Lutheran Church in Plano. He and Jessica have three children – two sons and one daughter.

When God made it clear that it was time for a change in direction, Borkenhagen began looking for that next calling. When he saw a job available at Christian Care Senior Living Community in Mesquite, he saw things coming together. He enjoyed his time at the Mesquite campus and feels incredibly blessed to now be given the opportunity to serve as Executive Director at the Allen campus. He says he is honored to serve with people whose hearts are focused on serving a population that many in our culture ignore. He looks forward to bringing peace and joy to many future residents in their senior years.

We look forward to Borkenhagen’s leadership and his mission for Christian Care Senior Living Community-Allen.
