Dean had the blessing of being born and raised in a Christian home. His parents were/are active participants in their local church and encouraged Dean and his sister to do the same. At age 21, he got baptised at Centre Street Church, fully committing his life to the Lord for His works and purpose. Dean has been married to his lovely wife Michelle for 20 years and has a daughter Jordan, and a son Brayden. They enjoy camping as a family, as well as a variety of mountain-based activities. They started coming to RockPointe Church in 2013 and attend the Westhills site.
