Dean is the Teaching Pastor here at First Christian Church. He married his college sweetheart Debbie in the Spring of 1981, and they have been working away at marriage since. Dean & Debbie have five adult children. Dean's passions are currently focused on the need for true spiritual leadership to be evidenced at every level of our society: in homes, in the church, and in our government.
