How It All Began

The summer following Dale Phillips's graduation from Southwest Baptist College, while touring with a group from that school, he first saw how effective the dramatic arts could be in communicating the dynamic truths revealed in the Bible.

Through the years a growing tool of Dale's ministry was the communication of truth through a host of characters that he brings to life using puppets and props from his "toolbox". He discovered that these characters were a wonderful way of delivering a message to a wide age range of people. Dale has had opportunities to share, utilizing the dramatic arts, in a variety of settings. Some of those include church services, camps, conferences, public and private schools, prisons, home fellowship groups, college campuses, retreats, care homes and alcohol treatment centers.

In the early spring of 2002, Dale became convinced that the Lord desired him to move what had been a side light of his ministry to it's main focus. Keystone Baptist church, where Dale pastored for 23 years, confirmed him in this by commissioning him to this new ministry. Thus, CareActor Inc. came into being by incorperating in the early summer 2002 and as Dale offically stepped away from pastoring and into this ministry venture September 1. 2002.

One ministry two dimensions

Seven years after launching we are being led to add a new dimension to CareActor.
The main accent of CareActor has been on the Actor - a ministry of standing before groups of persons telling stories.
Now we are being led to intentionally accent the Care portion of CareActor - this dimension of the ministry will be standing beside persons to encourage them in the living out their stories.
A common foundation of both dimensions is a desire to share dynamic truths that will set persons free to find and fulfill God's dream for them in the living out of their stories.
Stay tuned as this chapter of CareActor's story is still being 'written'!




In 2010 a new dimension was added to CareActor!
Believe it or not it's now been three years since CareActor added a new dimension!
We added
-CAREActor - a ministry of standing beside persons encouraging them in living out their stories;
-to CareACTOR - the ministry we've been providing of standing before persons sharing stories.
We are humbled to report that the CAREActor dimension has grown steadily & is definitely an increased part of what our Lord is doing through CareActor.
In addition to the increase in the 'Care' dimension, the Lord has graciously continued to open opportunities for the CareACTOR dimension. In the next few weeks we are scheduled to be in Colorado, Washington, Wyoming, Oklahoma and closer to home right here in Nebraska.


One of the greatest delights in the last 5 years has been the blessing of partnering with Harbor Ministries
Harbor Ministries is a unique ministry intent on helping leaders young (through Rhythm in 20) and more 'seasoned' (through Rogue) to live and lead well. To get a glimpse at what we are blessed to come alongside and join our Lord in serving I invite you to check out www.theharbor.cc


11 years and counting
This year marked the 11th anniversary of many firsts for CareActor.
March 2002 was when the dream of doing what has become CareActor was spoken into us, affirmed by our Lord in us and then spoken to Keystone by us.June 2002 was the month in which we were first recognized by the state of Nebraska as an offical non-profit corperation.
September 1, 2002 was the first day we stepped away from the where/what the Lord had us and stepped full time into the ministry venture of CareActor Inc.
