"A conspiracy is normally a plot to bring someone down, but God conspires amazing plans for our good. However, we have to be willing to participate with God, otherwise we are fighting against Him." Conspiracy of Grace

Dale has lived such an incredible life that through the years, many people have repeatedly asked for his story. This is an adapted version from the back cover of Conspiracy of Grace:
Struggling and persistently fighting against family put-downs and abuse of every kind turned Dale Fiegland into a gun-toting, knife-wielding, Mafia runner addicted to alcohol and drugs—the kind of man God loves to get ahold of and change. When Dale finally stopped fighting God and asked Him for help, miraculous events followed that can only be called a Conspiracy of Grace.
Raised in northern Ohio, Dale Fiegland graduated from Anderson College, taught in the inner-city schools of Cleveland, and attained success in business before ending up in a flophouse. When God began healing Dale, it brought more ups, downs, and crazy events. Ultimately, God persuaded Dale to become a counseling pastor, after which he earned his master of arts degree in counseling from Liberty University. He served as a counseling pastor for twenty five years at Riverside Church in Fort Myers, Florida, before receiving the title of pastor emeritus.
Today, Dale still maintains an active counseling practice, specializing in assisting those dealing with drug or alcohol addictions or various forms of abuse. Numerous churches have sought his help as a consultant in handling difficult matters.
It’s unpretentious, real, and captivating.

More happened to Dale by the time he was fifteen than has happened to me my whole life. What an exciting read!

I cried, laughed, felt hopeful, and inspired.

I found Conspiracy of Grace to be an easy read. Pastor Dale is only two years older than I am, so
some of the experiences about which he speaks are nostalgic to me. I must admit that our milkman
drove a truck and didn’t have a horse. Pleasant Valley Lake reminds me of several local quarries or
lakes to which my parents took me as a child.
I see where the name Conspiracy of Grace originated. Whenever Pastor Dale was in the depths of
hopelessness, God graciously provided someone to show him the right path.
I praise Pastor Dale for not leaving behind the alcoholics and addicts with whom he once associated
after cleaning up his act. It took courage to admit the depth of his sins, even after being saved and
becoming a pastor. Dale is an inspiration for his commitment to help and counsel others.
