Fred Dyke

Pastor Fred Dyke was born on Pool’s Island, Newfoundland and Labrador. He was the youngest of nine children born to Captain Chesley and Elsie Dyke. After graduating from Memorial University in 1971 with a Bachelor of Science, Fred taught school in Goose Bay, Labrador, and Harbour Grace before his thirteen-year career in the banking and finance industry, which took him to various management positions in Ontario.

He took up judo and wrestling at Memorial and competed provincially and nationally for Newfoundland and Ontario, winning ten provincial championships, three Atlantic provinces championships, and placing as high as second in national tournaments. Fred holds a fifth-degree black belt and still teaches.

After spending twelve years in management in the printing industry, he started his own consulting company, Dyman Management Inc. For twenty years he trained and mentored managers in various industries throughout North America, Scotland, and Russia. He authored and self-published That Book About Management in 2003.

After being heavily involved with Christian churches for most of his life, Fred was invited to fill in as a pastor of a Baptist Church in Belfountain, Ontario, where he has been pastoring since 2015, during which time he and his wife, Judee, completed a two-year program in theology.

Fred and Judee have seven children. They enjoy a cabin in Newfoundland built in the same location where Fred's father was born and lived.
