Ed Dean gave his life to the Lord and was baptized in 1998. His heart and passion for lost souls grew as he attended a Life Group and eventually became a Life Group Leader and Coach at Savannah Christian Church, GA. He also served at SCC on the missions team, where he participated and lead short term missions trips. In 2003, he felt the Lord’s tug to return to college and attended Johnson University (formerly Johnson Bible College) where he graduated with a Master’s in Biblical Preaching.
In 2007, he felt called to leave his full-time aviation job to serve as Senior Pastor of Antioch Christian Church in Oconee, GA, where he was ordained. After serving at Antioch, the Lord called him to Colonial Heights Christian Church as an associate pastor, specifically to launch their Life Group ministry.
After successfully launching the Life Group ministry, Ed returned to aviation. He moved to Tucson, AZ, where he served on the “pulpit-fill” team, where he would preach in smaller churches within 2 hours of Tucson. In 2018, he moved to Vero Beach and is currently lead minister (bi-vocational) of Westport Christian Church in Port St. Lucie, FL. His passion for reaching lost souls and his heart for teaching and preaching continues to be the focus of his ministry.
Allen Gonzalez graduated from Florida Christian College (now Johnson University Florida) in Kissimmee, Fl in 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in preaching. He has served Capital City Christian Church in Tallahassee, FL since 1991. Allen started as the church’s Youth Minister and served in that capacity for almost 13 years. He continued as their associate minister focusing on outreach and discipleship, and in 2013 became the Senior Minister.
Allen and his wife Donna have two kids (Sawyer and Rylee), a daughter in law, (Hayley Gonzalez), and one grandson (Chase).
Both Allen and Donna have been committed to Kingdom work since they were married in 1987. While Allen has participated with a handful of short term mission trips, the Mission’s Ministry at Capital City Christian Church has always been a pillar of strength for this local body of believers.
