Dean and Lori became the pastors of Abundant Grace Church on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018. Prior to becoming the pastors of Abundant Grace, they served as the Youth/Associate pastors since July of 2007.
Dean and Lori have been married since 1992 and they have two married adult children, Devin (Tiffany), Davia (Tony) and one teen son still in the nest, Dewey! Since graduating from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN, They have served in full time ministry in Nebraska and Arizona.
Dean and Lori’s passion for life is simply to serve and help people, regardless of their background, to experience the love of God and discover their true identity as sons and daughters of the King! Their desire for Abundant Grace is to be a safe place for people to be real, a graceful place that displays a culture of honor, and a dynamic place that dispatches the raw power of God and a believing place where God’s word-The Bible- is obeyed and practiced.
Dean and Lori enjoy going to concerts, living healthy and spending time with family. The ultimate vacation spot for Dean would be nestled among the pine trees in a log cabin surrounded by wildlife. For Lori it would be a white sandy beach along the ocean. A few things on Dean’s bucket list are to attend an awards ceremony in Hollywood or Nashville, watch the Detroit Lions play in the Superbowl, B-B-Q with Chip and Joanna Gaines, pray with Bono (U2) and see a dead person come back to life.
