Rev. Dr. Dale Skinner
Dale was born the youngest of ten children and raised in Nova Scotia. Dale discerned a call to the Christian faith in his early twenties when he started reading the Bible. This call later developed into a call to ordained ministry in the United Church of Canada. Dale received his BA from Carleton University (1999), a Master of Divinity from the University of Toronto (2003)and a Doctor of Ministry from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey (2009).
Dale’s life experience included years spent working with pro baseball and hockey. He has served the United Church of Canada in various settings, including outreach ministry at Metropolitan United Church in Toronto and pastoral ministry in the Eastern Townships of Quebec after his Ordination in 2003.
Dale has a passion for sharing God’s word through preaching and encouraging people to deepen their knowledge of faith through the study of Scripture, personal reflection, prayer and engaging in the common life of the Church –which is a life shared. "I believe that what God offers us in Jesus Christ a different kind of life. It's the opportunity for a better life, not only for one’s own self but for all. Life isn’t easy and sometimes it’s difficult to see a way forward. The Spirit calls us to learn, to serve, to grow and find strength. The life of faith isn’t one of accumulation, it is one of transformation. We are continually transformed as individuals through our relationships with others and ultimately in our relationship with God in Christ."
Dale is married to Rev. Maryann Skinner and together they have a daughter Leah.
