Dean Elliott

Since 1994, I have served here in a number of capacities including as a Youth Pastor, a teaching pastor, an administrator.  Now, I split my time between administrative/financial duties and leading men’s ministry, teaching, and preaching.

I grew up in East Texas in Grand Saline, which is about 60 miles East of Dallas. I went to Texas A&M, graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in languages in 1985, and did an internship at Grace Bible Church after graduation. I had grown up in a Christian home and had trusted Christ just before I turned 9. However, I didn’t get the kind of Bible teaching that I fell in love with until I began attending Grace Bible Church while attending college. It made a big impact. I wanted a lot more, so I enrolled in Dallas Theological Seminary the summer of the year following my internship. While working on a masters in theology, I served part time in my hometown at Main Street Baptist Church. I met my wife, Wendy, while interning at Grace Bible Church.  After she graduated from Texas A&M, she attended Dallas Seminary and we got married in 1988. I graduated from DTS in 1994 with a Masters in Christian Education.

Our first job in full-time ministry was here in Cleburne starting in the Fall of 1994.  We have been blessed by God with two grown children, Charissa and Sam.
