Soul Winning Is the Core Value

Soul winning is the core value of the lifelong ministry of Dean and his family.  Dean reaches the world via evangelistic crusades and aids in the building of nations by means of discipleship, training, education and humanitarian efforts.

Dean’s giftedness is presenting the complexities of the Gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit in simple, cross-cultural ways that don’t dumb it down or make it devoid of its power.  This is confirmed through the more than 1 million who have been saved baptized in God’s Spirit throughout the years.  Churches who have hosted his ministry have continually reported long-lasting fruit.

Perhaps most telling about his heart is the driving desire to reach the most unreached peoples of the earth.  This has led to life-threatening ministry in war-torn areas and inspiring others to give their lives for missions.  This has guided Dean & Carol to direct GOF throughout the years in such a way that they and those they have discipled have now helped plant over 300 churches.
