About This Project

Dale and Patti Epp proclaim Christ as Lord and life through speaking, teaching, and preaching in churches, camps, events, and conferences in New Zealand and abroad.

Dale and Patti Epp live under the gaze of Mt. Peel on the South Island of New Zealand. Originally from Canada, they have served with Torchbearers International (torchbearers.org) for 30 years. Dale and his wife Patti first spent several years on staff at His Hill (hishill.org) before moving to NZ in 2003 to pioneer and lead the Capernwray Bible school there for 11 years. Dale then became a Field Representative for Capernwray NZ for 10 years.  Dale has recently stepped back from that role and is focusing on Jumpstart (jumpstart.nz) - a growing camp ministry aimed at home educated teens in NZ and Australia, which he founded in 2010.  He still maintains a close association with Torchbearers and teaches at several other Torchbearer Bible schools regularly. They have two adult children.
