Ep 12: Creating Culture & The Intentional Leader with Dan Spino

Welcome to Church Chat, the show where we have the conversations about ministry you wish we were having. Today Josh and Emily are joined by Dan Spino, Discipleship Pastor at West Shore Free Church in Mechanicsburg, PA! They talk about why clarity is important, how the corporate world can benefit the church, ministering from your wounds, results vs. systems, leveraging feedback, valuing people over the organization, being addicted to our ideas, church culture shock and more!


Dan provides strategic leadership for many ministries at West Shore. He has a diverse background in organizational talent and culture and has a Master’s Degree in ILR, and a Master’s of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Dan and his wife, Stephanie, reside in downtown Mechanicsburg. For fun, he enjoys working on house projects, traveling, visiting coffee shops and getting to the ocean.
