I became interim pastor of North Albemarle Baptist Church in January 2019. I received my education at Fruitland Baptist Institute and then continued my education at Master’s International School of Divinity. I have been in the ministry of pastoring for 31 years. I love to deer hunt and ride motorcycles but most of all I love doing projects with Vicki around our home in Oakboro N. C.
I have been married to my beautiful bride Vicki for 48 years in March. I married way above myself because Vicki is one of the most real women I have ever met. She has done so much growing spiritually in our 48 years together. We have two wonderful children, Wendy from Concord NC who is married to a great man (Tommy Craver) and Dale Jr. from Oak Island NC, who is married to a wonderful woman (Rhonda). We have one granddaughter, Devyn Craven from Kannapolis NC who is married to a fine young man (Sam) and they have one daughter (Laylee, who makes her great Grandad and great Grandma act like two silly old people when she is around). We also have two grandsons, Dale III (Dallas) and Connor who live in Indian Trail NC. The Lord has been so faithful to Vicki and me through our journey of 48 plus years together, and we are looking forward to the years to come.
