Dale and Sarah MacKinney
Pastor Dale is a graduate from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX. He left with two bachelors degrees in church ministries and many wonderful memories. Dale met and married his wife soon after graduation and they began their ministry by pastoring a small church in northwest Kansas. They then moved to Great Bend and have absolutely loved the transition of being on staff and especially working with children.
Sarah is a native born Kansan who grew up in Greensburg and went to college in Ottowa. She has a heart for this area and has taken on our ministry to the 5th and 6th grade group which has a special place here in the church. Those 5th and 6th graders are very much a part of the ministry to the rest of the children here and it has been a honor to watch them grow under her leadership.
Dale and Sarah’s passion is to equip children with the knowledge and passion to become life long followers of Jesus Christ. They hope to accomplish this by opening up avenues through which parents who can teach their own children. Ministries such as Junior Bible Quiz, Sunday morning and Wednesday night activities, combined with camps and other outreach opportunities that we present to the kids, help to make this dream a reality. They strive to be an example as they attempt to lead their family of seven to love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Dale and Sarah truly believe that Great Bend First Assembly is a great place to raise a family.
