FIRST YEAR RESIDENTS
Daniel DeBardeleben, MD
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the POWER of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…” (Romans 1:16).
Dunamis! It’s where we get the word dynamite. It’s Greek for POWER. The gospel of Christ has real dynamite-like power. In the beginning, Christ our Creator used this power to speak things into existence. And, on the cross, Christ our Redeemer uses the same power to speak rays of light into the darkness of every suffering soul who believes. The same God who breathed life into the nostrils of a lifeless form, is the same One who is able to heal a wounded, mangled heart and repair a broken life of sin. I’ve seen Him do it many times. And, today I feel so privileged to train in a residency program that fosters this kind of experience with God personally and with our patients. I look forward to a training experience in which I will personally grow in character, medical knowledge, and clinical skills; and, an experience that will teach me how to demonstrate and proclaim the overwhelming love of Jesus through the arm of medicine and nutrition.

Why Valley Baptist? So that I can train in a setting where I can live out my Christian faith more authentically while receiving training that will prepare me to practice full spectrum medicine.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. ~Galatians 5:1

By the grace of God, I am a part of VBFPRP not only to practice medicine but more so to learn and grow as a whole physician. I am excited to serve Him through medicine together with brothers and sisters in Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
