Dale Stephenson has been Senior Pastor of Crossway since January 2008. Known as an innovative and positive leader, Dale is committed to seeing the Church become more relevant and engaged with the local community. He is a gifted preacher and teacher with a high respect for God’s word, an enthusiastic approach to outreach and a contagious delight in Jesus.
