Welcome to DaleTedder.com
My name is Dale Tedder and I am the Minister of Discipleship at Southside United Methodist Church, in Jacksonville, Florida.
My areas of ministry include teaching, discipling, leading small groups, pastoral counseling, spiritual direction, mentoring, leadership development, and writing.
I've been working with men in particular for over 25 years. To borrow an overused word, I am passionate about helping men come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and become all God has created, redeemed, and called them to be - to follow him as Lord in every sphere of their lives and to represent him in those spheres as his ambassadors.

What are those spheres of influence, relationship, and responsibility in a man's life? Well, in addition to helping men watch over their own souls, I also help them navigate their lives as husbands, fathers, employees and employers, church members and leaders, as neighbors as well as part of their larger communities, all with an eternal perspective.
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 life and 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 toward that purpose.
My wonderful wife and I have four children - from 21 to 11 - and we are fanatical fans of the Georgia Bulldogs... good times and bad.
