Ken and Pamela Dady
My name is Ken Dady, International Coach for Word of Life to Missionaries and Local Churches
My passion is to reach today's youth through evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training. That Passion is fueled by having worked as a layman in a local church using the Word of Life tools for over nine years. Plus the last 40 years ministering full-time in equipping churches to develop ongoing vibrant youth ministries and children's ministries-which also impact families to walk in the Lord.. To do that we coach Missionaries to impact their local churches as well as coaching some on life skills. Ken has been to 14 countries training local Church leaders and coaching Missionaries.
Ken grew up attending a church that did not preach Jesus Christ, nor did it believe that the Bible was true. When he accepted Christ as his Savior in 1966 at Ohio State University, he did not grow for two years because he was not exposed to Biblical teaching and Biblical living.
In 1969, when they were asked to work with teens using the Word Of Life tools in Colon, MI. Five years later they moved to Jackson MI when Ken became a Chief Design Engineer for a small company. In Jackson they served for 4+ years with the Word of Life Student ministry helping not only their local church but helping 19 other churches establish student ministries using the Word of Life tools. Because of the impact of the Word Of Life tools (Quiet Time, Scripture Memory, Christian Service, Doctrinal and Topical Lessons that were applicable) on not only their family, but also their Church, their teens and themselves, God called Ken and Pam Dady to be Area Missionaries with Word Of Life Local Church Ministries in 1978, serving western Ohio the first 35 years. July 2018 Ken became an International Coach to Missionaries and Local Churches. He has impacted leaders to 31 countries and traveled to 14 countries training national Missionaries to train local Churches with our Word of Life tools to impact Children, Teens and Parents. He has a wealth of information to share. That information stays current and fresh because he is not only a teacher but a learner as well and gains great insights from the teens and leaders from today’s culture.
Pam trusted Christ as a young child and grew up in a church atmosphere and nurtured by Biblical parents. Yet Pam was never shown how to have a daily relationship with Christ by reading and thinking through God's Word. They had their first date less than a month after Ken trusted Christ. On that Date, Ken shared with Pam that he was going to marry her. Pam thought Ken was crazy but one year and 17 days later they were married.
