Dean Klapatch Bio

Dean became a Christian in 1986 through our affiliated college ministry at Purdue University in Indiana where he earned a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Construction Engineering. He later met his wife while attending Glen Arbor Community Church (church is the best place to meet your future wife according to Dean).

He worked managing heavy industrial construction projects for 20 years as he served and led various ministries at Glen Arbor as the church grew and acquired our own building.  Dean left his contruction job in 2010 and has been serving as a full time pastor ever since.  He still enjoys building projects.

Dean enjoys sharing the gospel, and talking with people about God.  His hope and goal is to be used by God to help families to follow the Lord.
