North Island – Adventurers & Pathfinder Director


Dale Hokin

Family & Children’s Pastor. Pathfinders & Adventurers Director

Dale has the role of strengthening families to better love and support each other, and to better reflect Jesus. He is passionate about having people loved and nurtured, and supporting each other spiritually, emotionally and physically. This also means our children are being raised in strong, Godly families and churches where they are free to thrive and know God. Add Pathfinders and Adventurers, a discipleship ministry for children, and Dale has the best job in New Zealand. He is supported in ministry by his wife Anneli, and by their children Kara and Joshua.
