LL35: Pastor Dino Rizzo
“Serving people is not just something we want to do; it’s something we need to do. People discover personal healing through helping others.” - Dino Rizzo
Dino Rizzo serves on the Executive Team and is the Outreach and Missions Pastor at Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, AL. In these roles, Dino teaches in some weekend worship services throughout the year with a special emphasis on leading the church to recognize and meet needs in the community. Dino also serves as the Executive Director of ARC - the Association of Related Churches, located at the Billy Hornsby Center for Church Planting in Birmingham, AL.
From Church of the Highlands: "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 hundreds of life-giving local churches, and is poised to train, equip, and resource many more couples to launch churches in the coming years. In his role at ARC, Dino leads the National Serve Day initiative, encouraging 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 bring thousands of pastors and leaders together annually. Additionally, he serves as a keynote speaker and is involved in planning the conference App workshops. For years, Dino has talked and walked out God’s call to His people to serve others. In 2009, he released the best-selling book Servolution: Starting a Church Revolution Through Serving, which has sold thousands of copies. The book’s success launched a movement of more than 700 churches throughout the world that participate in Servolution in their own communities, including Lakewood Church (Houston, Texas), Life.Church, Camina De Vida (Lima, Peru), Life Church (Manurew, New Zealand) and Assembly of God (Gdansk, Poland). With Servolution, Dino sounds a mass call to churches that serving is not about an event, but rather, infusing a “serving” culture into their DNA."
