Dale grew up in Southern California where he gave his life to Christ in 1976; just at the tail end of the Jesus movement.
Graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in the mid 80’s, he has been a professional in the design field working in the automotive, marine, furniture, telecom and consumer goods industries ever since.
Dale met his wife Sara in 2004, marrying in 2008. Three years later, they began the process of adopting the first of their two children, EJ from Uganda. They were blessed again with the adoption of their daughter Grace, also from Uganda, just 2 short years later.
Dale has been involved in leading multiple ministry efforts, including Sunday School, Campus Life, Youth Sailing Outreach, Bible Studies, Small Groups as well as serving on a Church Leadership Team.
After 35+ years as a design professional, he and Sara are stepping out in faith as God is leading them into church planting.
