MEET DALE Burke, FOUNDER OF leverage LEADERSHIP
Since 2003, Dale has leveraged his unique mix of ministry experiences to better equip, encourage and train other pastors and Christian leaders with the goal of increasing both the effectiveness of their ministries and the joy in their lives.
Dale does leadership training as part of the Africa Division of Reach Global (the missions arm of the EFCA) while still teaching part-time at Seacoast Community Church in Encinitas, CA. Prior to Seacoast, he spent 15 years as Senior Pastor of the 6,000 member First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton, California. Here, Dale followed one of his heroes, internationally known pastor and author Charles Swindoll.
He has pastored churches of every size, as he spent ten years establishing a new church-plant in Ohio, then lead an historic 100 year old California congregation for the next seven years, before beginning his fifteen year service as Senior Pastor of the large church in Fullerton, CA.
Biblical truth, clarity, enthusiasm, relevance and a touch of humor characterize Dale's engaging teaching style as he addresses the practical issues of life and Christian leadership.
Dale and his wife, Becky, have been married 40+ years and have three adult children, and eight grandchildren.
