Meet Pastor Dale Dawson  &

His Wife Mary

Pastor Dale and Mary are from Baltimore, Maryland where they met as Department Store Buyers. Six months after their wedding, Dale's company, Princess Marcella Borghese, transferred them to Los Angeles. It was here, early in their marriage, that they came to know the Lord.


Dale and Mary both have strong retail and corporate backgrounds. The Lord continues to use them in business and ministry. In 1984 Dale was asked to teach the Adult Sunday School class at Woodland Hills Christian Church. He ultimately went on to Pastor that church. Dale & Mary were there for 8 years. The Lord then called them into a home church ministry that outgrew the home and became Lighthouse Christian Church. This ministry operated until 2008 when the Lord led them to Chatsworth Lake.


To them it is a match made in heaven. Dale has a heart for small church ministry and is able to do what He loves and is called to, teaching and preaching the Word of God.  The Lord also uses them in the town of Montrose where they have have had their businesses since 2000 and are involved serving the Montrose Shopping Park Association.


Fun fact! Pastor Dale is related to wild west lawman Wyatt Earp. To read more CLICK HERE.
