Mission: Extending the good news of the kingdom of god by teaching groups and by discipling individuals and encouraging them to reproduce themselves by teaching and discipling others and having them do the same.
Programs: Website teaching ministry - several hundred bible teaching articles have been written and printed on the ministry's website, www. Daleebel. Org. Recorded audio messages are also available for people to listen to on the website.
discipleship - through weekly group bible studies, individuals are influenced to become followers of christ. There are nearly 80 regular attendees weekly year-round in these studies, including those also led by volunteers. In addition, several times a week individuals are met with on a one-to-one basis for discipling. Several volunteers in the ministry are being trained to lead others in discipleship and mentoring. Several discipleship small gathering meal events were carried out. Books and bibles are given away in this ministry to assist spiritual growth.
teaching and consulting - teaching: to share the word of god through preaching, teaching the bible and encouraging recipients in their faith, teaching classes, seminars, community teaching series, and at conferences. Several hundred men and women were taught in worship services in churches and in mens' groups in oregon and california at weddings and funerals. Dale taught an eight week seminar in california in the spring attended by several hundred people. Dale spoke at weekend men's retreats. Consulting: to consult with, support, mentor, and encourage religious leaders with insights and direction specific to their particular fields. Over thirty individuals were consulted with or mentored during the year, including meeting with pastors and other ministry leaders to encourage and consult with them concerning the direction of their ministries and how they can accomplish their goals.
fundraising - several hundred receive the newsletters by e-mail or mail a few times a year. The newsletters are an effective tool in raising money and also provide a platform for teaching and discipling. The ministry hosted small groups of people as well as appointments to raise money for the ministry. We send out many cards and personal notes to supporters and others to encourage donations.
resources - educational resources are kept by the ministry and used to carry out programs, such as books, study guides, magazines, bibles, cds and dvds. Many of these items are used by those in the ministry and are also loaned out to individuals to help them grow in their faith.
