Pastor Dean

Dean Mabry, pastor is a native of Dallas TX.  Not raised in a Christian home, his parents divorced when he was five.  In 2005, by faith he became a follower of Jesus Christ.  Five months after being baptized, he was called to share the word of God.  His call was confirmed by the one person who knew him best, his wife Elaine who, by God’s grace, became a believer in 2005.  Dean and Elaine have partnered and served in ministry through their previous churches, college ministry and with the elderly.  In 2007, the Lord placed the call on Dean & Elaine’s hearts to plant a church in Ilion where Elaine is originally from, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the Lord said, “Now is the time to go”.  Although all of their question were not answered, God directed their paths.  He showed Himself faithful during this major transition in their lives.  Dean became licensed and ordained in April of 2010 by the First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA to preach the Gospel and to exercise his gifts in the work of the ministry.  Dean and Elaine moved to Ilion in June of 2010.  In June of 2011, they purchased a home in Ilion.  Dean has been with UPS since 1997 and Elaine currently is blessed to be employed as a local activities director at an adult home.

Dean and Elaine are excited and totally trusting in God for this church plant.  They know this is where they are to be and what God wants them to do.  They are thankful that God has allowed them to be a part of building His Kingdom here in Ilion, the surrounding area and to the ends of the earth.  Both look forward in meeting you and making a positive impact in their community for Jesus.
