Dale Harrah is an ordained UPCI minister and has served as pastor in Chicago and St. Louis. As a pastor he emphasized the need for Children’s Ministries. Using puppets since his teens, he often incorporates them into sermons, with a combination of storytelling and drama while he preaches. Since 1999, the Harrah family has ministered at local churches, as well as sectional, district and national events for the UPCI.
Dale is a graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Communications with a double major in Liberal Arts (emphasis on cultural & religious studies). Dale has over 20 years experience in children’s marketing, of that 15 years experience within the Christian publishing industry. Minister, marketer, comedian, and puppeteer: Dale wears many hats, but his passion is “church growth through Sunday School.” Members of the churches he has served have called him “The Parable Preacher,” because of his storytelling style of preaching. Sometimes old-fashion preaching, other times he’s dressed as a character while he delivers the Word. You never know what he’ll do next. Dale uses drama and puppetry to draw the attention of children of all ages.
Take a mixture of teaching, illustrative preaching, puppetry, drama, music and action songs – add excitement, fun and a lot of Holy Ghost and you get a unique revival experience for the whole family. The Harrah’s involve the congregation creating an atmosphere of fun, learning and worship that is great for the whole church family! The Harrah’s ministry has kids appeal, and has a big effect on teens and adults.
We look for God’s Spirit to be poured out at our revivals. It’s serious business to us and we approach all that we do with fasting and prayer. God blesses our meetings with people receiving the Holy Ghost, children leaving excited about church, teenagers and adults wanting to be more involved with local ministry.
We would ask that you prayerfully consider us for you next revival, district camp, sectional rally, banquet or other special occasion. Check out our website for photos, videos, references and advertising material.
