In 2000, Dino co-founded the Association of Related Churches (ARC), a growing group of churches devoted to launching, connecting, and equipping churches and pastors—with the ultimate vision of seeing a life-giving church in every community in the world. Dino serves as the Executive Director for ARC, which has now launched almost 800 life-giving local churches, and is poised to train, equip, and resource another hundred or more couples to launch churches in the coming year.

In his ARC role, Dino leads the National Serve Day initiative, enlisting ARC churches to serve their communities on a specific, designated day—hoping and praying that serving will become part of every church’s DNA. He is also highly visible as host and emcee at ARC’s conferences that in 2017 saw 3,000-plus pastors and leaders at the Birmingham gathering. Additionally, he serves as a keynote speaker and is involved in planning the conference App workshops.
