Dennis grew up in the south, learning from his parents about the truth of the Bible. At a young age, he trusted Christ and was helped to grow in his small church in Atlanta, Georgia.
After High School, he was accepted into Bible College in Chicago where he studied for a General Bible Degree
In 1968, he was inducted into the US Navy during the Viet Nam conflict. During this time in the Navy, Dennis was introduced to the Navigator Ministry and received great coaching and training in Disciple making. In his time alone with God he was given two promises from Luke 5 and 6. One was that “You will catch men.” And the other was “You will be trained” from Luke 6:40. His four years aboard ship was a great time to work out his convictions and training. God used this time to bring many men to Christ and see them mature in Christ.
After the Navy, he completed a Degree in Business Administration at Point Loma College in San Diego. After graduation, he joined the staff of the Navigators and began ministering on the Campus of San Diego State for six years and then moved to the University of Oregon for seven years.
