Dr. Dean Kurtz

Dean was raised in a pastor’s home and was saved in evangelistic meetings in his father’s church at the age of 14. He was part of a musical outreach team and through Bible studies with that group grew to love the Word of God and developed a passion for music ministry. Dean married his high school sweetheart, Brenda, in 1979 and graduated from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College with Bachelor’s degrees in Bible and Music Education. He went on to earn a Masters from Pensacola Christian College and a Doctorate of Ministry from Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary.

Dean now serves as Adult Ministries and Outreach Pastor helping adults to grow in their love for Christ and reach out to those who need the Savior. He started Calvary’s newfocus ministry in 2008 which seeks to reach and disciple those who know they are under the grips of sinful addictions. Pastor Dean also leads worship ministries here at Calvary. In 2007 Dean published a book entitled “Worship and Music in the Word.”

Dean and Brenda have two adult daughters, Sarah and Colette.

Dean’s life verse is found in II Samuel 7:18 “Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?”
