My name is Dale Tedder and I am the Minister of Discipleship at Southside United Methodist Church, in Jacksonville, Florida. 

For over 25 years my areas of ministry have focused on teaching, discipling, leading small groups, pastoral counseling, spiritual direction, mentoring, leadership development, and writing.

To borrow an overused word, I am passionate about helping folks…​

  • know Jesus Christ,
  • become more like Christ,
  • and follow Christ as Lord in every sphere of their lives.

What are those spheres of influence, relationship, and responsibility? Well, in addition to helping disciples watch over their own souls, I also want to help them walk with Christ in their marriages, as mothers and fathers, employees and employers, church members and leaders, and as neighbors in their communities… all in the power of God’s gracious Spirit.

I am a member of The Fellowship of Ailbe, which is a spiritual fellowship. Let me encourage you to click here to learn more about this fellowship and discover the many online opportunities and resources for greater spiritual growth and vitality for your own life as well as those in your spheres of influence.

​This website is the “online version” of my calling, passion, and ministry and I pray God will use this small effort for his glory and the blessing of those who visit here. 

​My wonderful wife and I have four children – from 22 to 12 – and we are “enthusiastic” fans of the Georgia Bulldogs… in good times and bad.

Grace and Truth,
