Somewhere around 1992 during a previous marriage, after surviving years of drug abuse and the rebellious lifestyle with all that it pertained, Dean decided to quit drugs, rededicate his life to Christ, and become an Ordained Baptist Minister
Unfortunately, his wife of twenty-five years was not ready to be a minister's wife. Although they stayed together for a few years after Dean became a minister, the road became very rocky.
Dean became the Chaplain of Prisoners for a local county jail in Missouri for nearly six years until his previous wife filed for a divorce. During that time though, Dean became close to the Lord and saw hundreds of men dedicate their lives to Christ.
Along with the jail ministry, Dean was involved in running a Christian recovery home for men to give them a new start in life.
Dean is currently living in Missouri with his current loving and Godly wife. Together they help raise awareness for Domestic Violence. As well as being involved in a motorcycle ministry that touches the lives of those individuals that seem to fall between the cracks of society because of the lifestyle they choose. They also have an emergency crisis fund available for the same.
