Dino and his wife DeLynn started Healing Place Church in 1993 with the single focus of being a healing place for a hurting world. Starting with just twelve, it has now grown to over 5,000 people gathering every week in 14 services in 8 locations from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Maputo, Mozambique.
For two consecutive years, Healing Place Church has been listed as one of America's Top 25 Most Innovative Churches. That innovative drive is expressed in a passion to serve the poor and hurting - wherever they are, and whatever it takes. Every week hundreds of volunteers serve in outreaches - cooking hot breakfasts for the homeless, helping ex-prisoners re-enter society, caring for AIDS orphans, giving roses to ladies working at local strip clubs, and reaching the poor through free medical and dental clinics and many other outreaches.
Dino Rizzo also co-founded the Association of Related Churches, a group that on average plants one new church every 12 days. He is a strong believer in the irreplaceable value of the local church - in the USA and across the globe. He also believes that as believers we can do more when we are together, leveraging each other's strengths to build the Kingdom. As a result, some of his greatest assets are deep relationships with others.
His new book, Servolution, exposes his passion to see believers join together in a revolution of serving others. He has spoken at several national conferences and has taught leaders and pastors all over the world to serve how Jesus served. His heart inspires the body of Christ to act with bold love as they step out of their comfort zones, abandon their fears, and connect with others of all types and in all places. And in all of it, for Dino Rizzo, it is still about reaching the world by serving one - for the glory of God.
Dino & DeLynn have 3 incredible children, McCall, Dylan and Isabella who they are championing for the cause of Christ.
