Founder and Creator of Like A Team

Why Like A Team was created?Like A Team Dale Roach photo

The founder and creator of Like A Team is Dr. Dale Roach. 

This website’s first post took place on October of 2009.

Dale‘s desire to work in developing strong teamwork began during his high school years when he was introduced to a new high school football coach.  The high school team Dale played for had an overwhelming record—-a losing record.  When introduced to a new coach in his junior year it was a tremendous turn around for the team and the players. 

Dale and his teammates were shown how to be a real team. 

In one year the football team went from losing every game to claiming a winning season. 

The development of teamwork and team skills have been a great interest for Dale since that senior year in high school.  This interest evolved in his years as a businessman and his 30 plus years as a pastor.  He also served in South Carolina as a denominational team leader of over 50 churches. 

These interests also created articles and posts like:

9 Characteristics of Jesus as a Leader

12 Characteristics of an Effective Leader

A Clear Definition of Teamwork

Bible Verses for Teamwork

Laws of Teamwork – The 10 Commandments

Eight Attributes of High-Performance Teams

The Teamwork and Leadership Development Journey

Dale is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree.  He also is a graduate of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received his Master of Divinity degree.

In 1999 Dale began his study in a doctoral program at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  His studies took place while Thom Rainer was the Dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions and Evangelism.

Dale was a member of one of the first cohorts to graduate from SBTS with a doctoral degree in Church Growth Consulting. His studies at SBTS focused on team development.

The title of Dale’s doctoral thesis is A Consultant’s Strategy for Team Development Within the Local Church.

Dale is also the author of three other books created to help churches develop a strong teamwork strategy. Those books are The Jethro Ministry, A Biblical Strategy for Teamwork and The Servant-Leadership Style of Jesus and Growing Your Prayer Life (being released in March in 2018).

At present Dale is serving as the Senior Pastor of Poplar Springs Baptist Church in Moore, SC.

Creating successful teamwork takes place when utilizing every gift of every person on the team.

Working together “LIKE A TEAM” can produce strength for any organization.
