Dr. Dale Briggs
Pastor – Teacher
Dale was born in 1957 and raised in a Christian home. After high school he began to work full-time on the family farm in Michigan. He was married in December of 1979 to Katherine (Kathy).
Dale was 28 when, by the grace of God, he expressed true saving faith in the work and person of Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior. At the age of 30 he began to sense God leading him away from the farm into Christian ministry. Three years later, this leading resulted in Dale moving his family to California to attend The Master’s College.
After college graduation in 1994, Dale and his family went back to Michigan where Dale served as a youth pastor and periodically filled the pulpit. During this time, Dale began to sense God’s call to preach the word of God. He and the family moved back to California in 1995 and Dale began to attend The Master’s Seminary. Throughout his time in seminary, God solidified within Dale the call to preach.
He graduated the seminary in 1999 and a year later answered a call to pastor a church in Quincy, Illinois.
Dale has been the pastor of Christ’s Church of Tucson since August of 2007. In 2013, Dale received his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in expository preaching from The Master’s Seminary. Dale and Kathy enjoy hiking, taking long walks, going on extended road trips, and spending time with family. They have four children: Kristy, David (married to Amber with three sons, Monroe, Waylon and Clint), Heather Kvidahl (married to Cliff with two daughters, Paisley and ), and Micah (married to Rachel).
