Christ Fellowship is a statement of identity. We believe that every human being suffers from the same problem. Because of his sin, he has been alienated from his Creator-God. Left alone, every person will pursue in some form, a God-substitute. But no matter what he pursues, he will come up empty. Man was created to worship God and until he repents of his sin and turns to Christ in faith, he will wander hopeless, pursuing joy and fulfillment in things that cannot deliver what they promise.

We believe that Jesus Christ, as revealed in the Scriptures was God in flesh. We believe that through His miraculous birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death, His glorious resurrection and His victorious future return, He alone has the ability to change everything. By His grace, He has provided a way for sinful man to be reconciled to holy God. Jesus Christ cancelled the debt and paid the penalty for sin so that man’s deepest and most profound problem could be remedied. In fact, this is fundamentally what a church is-a group of pardoned rebels. Through Christ’s work, a new family is created and it consists of people that are different ages and nationalities; that don’t like all the same things or look exactly the same. But what they do share in common is the reality that they have been transformed by the power and grace of God in Jesus Christ. The church is a fellowship created by Christ and centered on Christ.

Pastoral Leadership

Dale Stinson

Dale Stinson


Dale grew up in Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville, and came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in his early twenties through the ministry of a local church. Years later he, after being called to vocational Gospel ministry, Dale began serving that same church in the pastoral ministry office.

Dale was called to serve as the Pastor of Christ Fellowship Church in early spring of 2020. Since 2009 Dale has served in various ministerial capacities, from a large Gospel Rescue Mission to small discipleship ministries. Most recently he served as Associate Pastor at Redeemer Bible Church in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Dale has a Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Biblical Counseling from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is also a certified member of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.

Dale believes that God has called him to help people fall in love with Jesus Christ, learn how to live for Him, and how to “go” for Him. He believes that the best way to do this is through the ministry of the local church, where people are taught the Bible so they can know and understand God’s plan for redemption culminating in Jesus Christ.

Dale’s desire is to see Christ Fellowship be a local church where disciples of Jesus are made, shepherded, and then sent out as Christ’s people to both proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to lovingly minister the Gospel in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities.

Dale and his wife Amie have been married since 1996 and they have four sons—Cade, Blake, Elliott, and Kitts. The Stinsons love the Midwest and her people. They are thankful to call Sun Prairie, Wisconsin home!
