Married to his lovely wife Fayrene since 1975, Dana Dickey is a father of four daughters, all homeschool graduates. He is now enjoying the experience of being a grandfather. He is involved with family and youth ministries in his home. One of the passions of his heart is helping fathers through the process of courtship. A workbook has been written by Dana toward this goal and is offered on the website SeasonsOfCourtship.com. Two of his own children have participated in the international trips offered through Global Encounters and have benefited greatly. Their perspective on ministry and other cultures has been positively changed through these trips.
Professionally, Dana manages a non-profit agricultural organization with an annual budget of $2.4 million. Being the only employee, he also serves as meeting organizer, contract administrator, bookkeeper, editor, photographer, desktop publisher, web master, IT chief, public relations officer, and paper filer. He has been involved with this type of management for over 20 years. He is also a practicing computer programmer (on occasion).
