Vinn Dean joined the Growing in Grace ministry family in 2005 after receiving life changing healing and truth from the Lord through this ministry.  Her time with the Lord was so significant in her journey with Him that she wanted to facilitate encounters with the Lord for others so they could experience His life-giving touch too.  She continued to pursue a Masters in Ministry, and was ordained and licensed as a minister at Growing in Grace in 2010.

Her heart is to give out of the overflow of comfort she has received from the Lord and help equip others to walk in His abundance and freedom.

In the Fall of 2016, she took the lead as Executive Director of Growing in Grace Prayer Ministry.  She is committed to the healing and spiritual growth of others.  This healing is from God:  knowing our identity as His lavishly loved children.

Also in 2016, Vinn had the opportunity to begin an adventure ministering to new mothers through their child birthing experience bringing support and encouragement as a doula.

Vinn and her husband Jeff, also a GGM minister, have been married over 30 years and often minister together.

They have two married daughters, Megan and her husband Carter Whittier and Jackie and her husband Michael Curry.  Their son Daniel is a freshman at the University of Alabama.  Two big, black German shepherd brothers, Riley and Buck, are much loved and adored family members.

Vinn loves spending time traveling with family and friends as well as hiking, boating, and playing games.

She also loves her alone time and reading.

Favorite foods are steak with sweet potato fries and a close second are chicken fajitas.  Let’s not forget homemade vanilla ice cream either!
