Dr. Dale Arthur Fife is a gifted pastor, author, teacher, and musician, with an insatiable passion for intimacy with God. His zeal for the Lord has led him on an incredible journey from his first pastorate of a small rural church in a coal-mining town outside of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to the co-founding of a large multiracial inner-city church in Pittsburgh. After five decades of ministry experience and increasing requests from others for mentoring and ministry relationships, Dale and his wife, Eunice, founded Mountain Top Global Ministries, a network of pastors, ministries, businesses, and leaders with local, regional, and international impact. As a worship leader in the mid-seventies at the first outdoor Jesus Festivals numbering over 50,000, or in his present ministry speaking in churches, conferences, colleges, and gatherings for leaders and intercessors, Dale's enthusiasm and hunger for God is contagious. His wisdom, maturity, and genuine spiritual concern for others have caused many to regard him as a "spiritual father" in the Lord. His insightful teaching has inspired and blessed believers and leaders in many nations."Doctor D," as he is affectionately called, graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh.
