Like A Team

A Christian Resource for Leadership and Teamwork Development

Jethro Ministry Ebook

Founder of Like A Team


The goal of  “Like A Team” is to create a Christian based resource that can help those in business, volunteer groups, charity work and church work to develop strong and healthy teams.

This website was created by Dr. Dale Roach in 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 the new coach it was a tremendous turn around for the team and the players.  Dale and his teammates were shown how to be a true 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 and denominational team leader. 

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 earned 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.  He was a member in one of the first cohorts to graduate from SBTS with a doctoral degree in Church Growth Consulting.  The fjethro-ministry-clip-1ocus of his study at SBTS was aimed toward team development.  The title of Dale’s doctoral thesis was A Consultant’s Strategy for Team Development Within the Local Church.

Dale is also the author of The Jethro Ministry, A Biblical Strategy for Teamwork and The Servant-Leadership Style of Jesus.  At present Dale is serving as the Lead Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Manning, SC.

Successful teamwork is created when every gift of every person on the team is utilized.  Working together “LIKE A TEAM” can produce strength for any organization.
