God has given Dean Kershner a passion for fulfilling the Great Commission. His international work began in Moscow, Russia, in 1992. A ten-week mission trip with the Advanced Training Institute International grew into a five-year stint of ministry and service, spreading the Gospel in Russia. In 2002, Dean began working in Africa with Gospelink, a ministry that supports indigenous preachers financially, educationally, and practically. Since then, he has traveled to Africa twenty-eight times for ministry. As a Gospelink Field Director, Dean oversees the development of an agriculture training center and an orphanage named “Harvest Hope Home” in Malawi. Dean lives in Silver Creek, Georgia, with his wife and six children.
