Worship Leader
Email Dean
Dean Dickschat is the Worship Leader at Crosspoint Church and has been since October of 2002. He was born in Navasota, Texas where most of his family still resides. He graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BBA in Marketing. He became involved in music ministry in 1996 at Trinity Presbyterian Church in McKinney at the complete nagging of his Pastor to help start a contemporary service. Dean thanks Patrick for his persistence to this very day! He has learned from this that God places people in our path to influence us and to help us find HIS will for our lives.
Dean plans on being at Crosspoint until his days as a worship leader are done which will probably coincide with the day that no one wants to hear him sing anymore.
He also has a real job as the owner of EverCom Printing, Ad Specialties, and Supplies, Inc. and tries very hard not to let his job get in the way of his passion – leading people into a deeper relationship with our Savior.
