Dean was born and raised in Southern California. Although he attended church regularly, as a child, it was not until after he was married and had his second child that God called him and he became a true believer in Jesus Christ. Dean worked as Director of Facilities for 19 years at The Bridge Bible Fellowship in Reseda, CA. His family served in various ministries and were blessed to call TBBF their home church.
Dean has been married for 28 years to his lovely wife, Kim and together they have 8 children, ages 25 through 9 years. In 2021, Dean and his wife felt it best to leave California and continue raising their kids in the Tulsa area. Leaving their three eldest kids behind in CA, Dean took a giant leap of faith and moved his family to Bixby. After a year of working several different jobs, God blessed Dean with another church position as Facilities Supervisor at Tulsa Bible Church. This was an answered prayer and Dean has enjoyed getting to know his new church family as well as fellow staff members.
Dean enjoys spending time with his family, building projects, and cooking great food for his family and friends.
