Men's Divorce Recovery began in 2016 after Dale went through his own divorce after 32 years of marriage. Convinced that every man who is divorced can experience God's love and transformation, Dale launched MDR to help men find God and his plan for the second half of their lives.

Dale's life mission is to fervently love God and people, expressing that love frequently, and persevering in it forever.

He desires to be used by God to help others on their journey with Christ as we grow into his likeness in whatever context, place and life situations God chooses, thus fulfilling the Great Commandment, the Great Commission, and the Cultural Mandate.

Dale has pastored six churches in Texas and New England, traveled and taught overseas and led Men’s Retreats and Conferences. He holds a B.S. from the University of Texas and the M.Div. and Ph.D. degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dale is dad to Lindsey, Davis and Aaron.

For Dale's full Bio 

I am uniquely qualified to lead this ministry…

Spiritually, I have heard God’s distinct call to meet the needs of divorced men.
  • I have taught in a variety of venues including men’s conferences, retreats and pastors’ conferences. I've taught in various prisons and have counseled sex offenders and victims. I have wide crosscultural experience. I've organized multiple events for a variety of audiences. 
  • While Senior Pastor at West Congregational Church and Crestview Bapitst Church I was deeply involved in our vibrant men’s ministries.
  • I have led six churches for a total of thirty one years of senior pastor ministry. 
  • Academically, I have an earned Ph.D. (Pastoral Theology).
  • Experientially, I have lived through the heart-wrenching pain of divorce. 

I am excited about the opportunity to follow God into leading men from the devastation of divorce into the journey of healing and wholeness. I know that though God did not cause my divorce, he can and is using it to help those who are in the same painful circumstances.
