Dale Pratt, Council Chairman - Pastor
 
Pastor Dale started his pastoral career as a youth intern for Bonanza Community Church in the summer of '69.  He and Mary returned to that little farming community Church to Pastor from January '70 through Easter Sunday '72, and have been involved in Pastoral ministry in one form or another ever since.  They moved to Buckley with their family in '83 to pastor this church now known as Cedar Community Church.  Dale says, "I'm doing what I love to do.  My life mission is to help people move from where they are to where God wants them to be.  When I see folks changing and growing in their various relationships, I get the sense that God's plan is working!"
 
While their life is completely committed to Pastoral ministry, they believe God expects us to live a balanced life.  Dale & Mary have been married since '67, have two grown sons and four grand-children.  Perhaps their favorite thing to do these days is spend time with their kids and grand-kids!  You grandparents understand that don't you! 
 
"Life is good and God is kind."
