Jeffrey Dean is an ordained pastor, teen evangelist, counselor, and author from Nashville, Tennessee. He is also the founder of Jeffrey Dean Ministries, whose mission is “to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ to teenagers and their families, and to engage, empower, and equip followers of Jesus Christ to pursue a committed relationship with Him.”
Dean has earned the reputation as an expert in teen culture who tackles everyday issues by applying biblical solutions. In the words of author and communicator Josh McDowell, “Jeffrey Dean has a way of zeroing in on today’s culture. He knows how to communicate the love of Jesus in a way that captures their attention and convicts their hearts.” Dean’s unique combination of humility and boldness empowers people to live in ways they never imagined they could.
Building on more than fifteen years of experience and his gift for telling a great story, Jeffrey has risen to the forefront as one of the nation’s most relevant and sought after communicators to both teens and adults. He has spoken to more than two million people at churches, conferences, prisons, and public and parochial schools across America.
Dean currently writes for Multnomah Books, a division of Random House Publishing. His titles include WATCH THIS: A Getting There Guide to Manhood for Teen Guys and THIS IS ME: A Teen Girl’s Guide to Becoming the Real You. Dean is also the author of two devotional books: BETWEEN THE LINES FOR GUYS and BETWEEN THE LINES FOR GIRLS. He served as both writer and host of FLOOD, a multi-volume DVD-driven curriculum published by Serendipity House Publishing and distributed by LifeWay. His newest release is entitled THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE (Multnomah, February 2009).
Dean is currently a Compassion International speaker and was the speaker for the national Christ in Youth Believe Tour.
