Wendy Dean

Wendy originally joined the Rockpoint Staff in 1992 and served for 6 years. After having 3 boys in 4 years, she took a break, and served at a smaller church. God call her back to Rockpoint in 2003 where she has been ever since!

Wendy grew up in Western PA just outside of Pittsburgh (hence, she’ll always be a Steelers fan!). She did her undergraduate work at Wheaton College and received her Masters in Religious Education from Trinity Seminary in Deerfield, IL. She and her husband Jeff moved to Minnesota as newlyweds in July of 1992.

Wendy and Jeff live in Lake Elmo with their four children, Jeff, Jeremy, Jared and Jessie. The boys are either in college or recently graduated so technically it’s Jessie, a dog and 2 guinea pigs at home full time. Wendy loves to read, shop, go to movies and spend time with friends. She also enjoys MN much more during the summer months!

“I am blessed to say that I have been a Children’s Pastor for more than 20 years. My first passion is watching kids grow in their relationship with Jesus, not only through age appropriate, biblically based ministries but also through homes where their parents are serious about being the main faith influencers of their kids. My second passion (which isn’t far behind the first) is helping volunteers to serve in the areas where they are gifted. I love to watch how God uses people who are called, equipped and created to share His love with our kids. Watching the body of Christ “do their thing” is one of my greatest joys!”
