Paul Dean has a conversational & humorous approach to his speaking and writing.  A joy to listen to and I look forward to hearing him every chance I get.

With a historian's knowledge, a seasoned speakers wit, and a pastor’s heart Paul served our men with excellence. Paul used the context of one man’s experience in World War I to call us to engage with courage in the places and people God has called us to reach and serve.

Paul is a natural storyteller. He puts you at ease with his unassuming style, sets a stage, often flinging you out into some unforeseen territory, and then reels you back in for an inspiring point of reflection. If Paul is on the program, get your ticket now.
