Unlike our US culture, our Jewish roots implore us to approach the beginning of a New Year with a time for deep reflection and repentance.
Co-Founder at Holy Ground Explorations
Dan Stolebarger has been involved in a variety of “ministry” forays since 1970, from pastoring a traditional church, planting a church, serving as an Executive Pastor at a megachurch, and has led a small group ministry consisting of over 500 groups. He served as the head of the Bible Department at a Christian high school in San Diego, as well as serving as the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.
Following the Lord’s leading throughout his life has involved taking many “risks” which has led to a plethora of experiences, all leading him to this new chapter in his life. In May 2015, God birthed an exciting new ministry, Holy Ground Explorations. Dan, along with his wife, Sharon, co-founded HGE and they are excited about where this journey will lead.
Dan is passionate about Israel, the Word of God, and raising up followers of Jesus.
Dan and Sharon Stolebarger have been married 39 years and have been blessed with three sons, Lucas, Trevor (wife Alicia), and Jesse (wife Whitney), as well as five GRANDsons, and one Princess. Their ministry began in Chula Vista, CA, at the First Baptist Church, planting EastLake Community Church, moving on to Horizon High School under the leadership of Mike MacIntosh at Horizon Christian Fellowship. From there he was the Executive Pastor of The Rock Church San Diego before moving up to Idaho in 2005 to join the ministry of Koinonia Institute.
