DJ Bartels was born and raised in Kansas and is the oldest of three kids. DJ was raised in a very faithful family and feels fortunate enough that he was able to attend Catholic school from kindergarten through high school. During his early years in college he found himself seeking for “more”, but could not figure out what exactly he was seeking. After losing his sense of direction, DJ was challenged to turn towards the Lord and to run to Him. After realizing that what he was seeking was the happiness that only God can give him, DJ felt as if he was being called to help others find the love of the Father.
