Pastor Emeritus Dale Smith : Pastor Emeritus

Pastor Emeritus Dale Smith

Pastor Emeritus

Dale Smith has a rich heritage and legacy to the PCA and Colleyville Presbyterian Church.  He and his wife, Anne, along with their daughter, Catherine, migrated from St. Louis to accept a calling to be the first permanent pastor of Irving Presbyterian Church in 1976.  The church at the time had been renting auditorium space until a new building could be commissioned.  In 1979, that building would make its home off of Cheek Sparger Rd. in a community known as Colleyville.  It was there that the church would be renamed Colleyville Presbyterian Church.

Dale pastored the church from 1976 until his retirement on March 31, 2014 after 38 years of faithful service.
