Dale Wisely to join church staff as Family Life Director
May 8, 2018
We are very excited to welcome Dale Wisely PhD to the Prince of Peace Church staff as Director of Family Life beginning this July. He joins us from Mountain Brook Schools, where he currently directs counseling and guidance, nursing and student health, at-risk programs and parent and community education among other duties. He has been a child and adolescent clinical psychologist for nearly 35 years.
In this newly-created role of Director of Family Life, Dale will use his counseling skills to guide the church and school and offer expanded adult education and family programs on wellness and mental health. He has facilitated similar adult programs at POP over the past few years with great success.
Dale will also serve as a professional resource to whom our pastors can refer parishioners when the need for individual or family counseling is identified during spiritual counseling. Dale is uniquely qualified to bridge the gap between spiritual and temporal counseling as he holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s in Theology and is planning to pursue a certificate in spiritual direction at Spring Hill College. As a well-known mental health professional in Birmingham, he can identify issues and refer individuals and families to the appropriate professional care.
