Dale Elwell is an evangelist with a genuine love for Jesus Christ and a sincere desire to help local churches become more effective in making disciples. As an evangelist, Dale strives to be ready "in season and out of season" to preach the word of God to various audiences. In 1996, Mr. Elwell was ordained into the gospel ministry (Calvary Baptist Church, McLeansville, NC). In 1997, Dale announced his call to be an evangelist and founded Cross Culture Ministries. Cross Culture is focused on IGNITING THE NEXT GENERATION FOR CHRIST! It is the organization's goal to evangelize, equip, and engraft teenagers into the life of the overall church. Dale & Cross Culture have placed a high priority on helping churches to unite teenagers with the older generations in the church. Mr. Elwell is committed to rightly dividing the word of God through study and solid expository preaching. He specializes in sharing "real life" illustrations that help bridge the message of scripture into the current culture so that listeners are tuned in from start to finish, expecting to hear God speak to them personally. Dale holds a Masters of Divinity w/biblical counseling degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. However, he considers his greatest credentials to be God's anointing, and the support of his family. Dale has been married to wife, Brantlee Elwell, for 22 years. Together, they have 4 children: Caleb, Drew, Hannah and Hope.
