About Conspiracy of Grace
Conspiracy of Grace: A Wild Tale of Transformation
From the Mafia to the ministry, a wild ride of a story.
Struggling and persistently fighting against family put-downs and abuse of every kind turned Dale Fiegland into a gun-
toting, knife-wielding, Mafia runner addicted to alcohol and drugs—the kind of man God loves to get ahold of and
change. When Dale finally stopped fighting God and asked Him for help, miraculous events followed that can only be
called a Conspiracy of Grace.
This winsome, true story—touched with humor—is shared in plainspoken style by a pastor/counselor unlike any you may
have met. Dale’s story helps lift the spiritual veil, enabling readers to see how God works amid life’s gritty, hard-hitting
realities. This book will engage and delight you and may challenge some of your ideas about God and faith.

a relationship with God, find enjoyable sobriety, and grow in simple lessons like telling the truth no matter what. It took
Dale even longer, and a few crazy events, to agree with God’s incredible plan that he was to be a pastor.

handling difficult matters.
After being bestowed with the title of pastor emeritus, and retiring from Riverside, Dale has continued to provide
counseling to the hurting. Since retiring in 2012, he has continued to provide assistance to many for another ten years (and
