We are so excited to have Coach Dean teaching PE at KCA and coaching basketball for the varsity boys! Coach Dean is currently studying Christian Leadership at Liberty University. His favorite scriptures are Joshua 1:9 and Matthew 28:19-20. He believes this is where God has called him to serve, and he is excited to work with our students.
