For the last thirty-six years, D. L. Starkey has served at a senior pastor, social worker, hospice chaplain, and bereavement coordinator. He has held various leadership positions in different churches, as well as work for a number of hospices. He holds D Min and M Min degrees, as well as degrees in social work, and radio/television broadcasting.
He is strongly dedicated to the call of Jesus on his life. His desire is to reach those who are hurting and troubled, whether it be due to a physical loss or due to losses caused by one’s own sinfulness, strongly believing that the love and grace of Christ can heal the most wounded of hearts.
He and his wife, Patty, live in Southern California and have been blessed with five children. Their passion is to serve the Lord Jesus in “spirit and in truth,” realizing, of course, that all men are fallible. Their hearts’ desire is to witness the next coming of the Lord Jesus, if possible, in their lifetime.
