Encourager, Christ-follower, wife, mom, grandmother and pastor
Dale and Pam are natives of the Keystone State. For the first thirty years of their lives they lived in the Lehigh Valley area. Most recently, Dale and Pam served at Parkway Wesleyan Church in Staunton, VA. Dale served as the Worship Arts and Student Ministries Pastor and Pam served as the Children's Pastor. Dale has also served as solo pastor in Wesleyan churches in Martinsville, VA and Fort Edward, NY. In addition, Dale served as worship pastor in Flint, MI.
Pam and Dale have three children. The oldest is Rebecca and is married to Michael and they live in Ottawa, ON with their son Robert and cat, Benny. Anna has graduated from Southern Wesleyan University and James, the youngest has just graduated from high school and plans on attending Houghton College in the fall.
Dale is an accomplished musician playing guitar, bass, and keyboard. He has a Batchelor’s Degree in Church Music from Indiana Wesleyan University. He has completed his ordination requirements through the Wesleyan Church’s FLAME program and was ordained in 2005. During the year of 2015-2016, Dale worked full-time at Chick-fil-A as Pam and Dale sought the Lord's leadership.
Pam served as the Children’s Pastor at Parkway in partnership with her husband. Pam graduated from United Wesleyan College with a degree in Bible with a concentration in Elementary Education. Beginning in 2005, Pam began pursuing ordination in the Wesleyan Church. She took classes at the district level and classes through FLAME as well. On July 9th of 2012, Pam was ordained into the ministry of the Wesleyan Church.
So Pam and Dale are now a pastoral couple. One of Pam’s passions is ministering to military personnel. Many times they have hurts that we can’t even begin to understand. She often takes cookies to recruiters in Staunton and Roanoke. In addition, she sends encouraging cards and care packages to our military personnel while deployed.
