Dean Behrens | Lead Pastor in Mission

I’m a KCK native and got connected to Christ Church during my summer breaks from Kansas State University. The spiritual depth and authenticity of the people of this church drew me in.  Then the rooted Anglican worship became a meaningful and essential part of my faith expression.

I’ve served in many roles at Christ Church including Executive Pastor, Family Life Pastor, and Director of Student Life; I was ordained to the priesthood in 2014.

As Lead Pastor of Christ Church Mission, I provide pastoral leadership to the congregation that worships in the city of Mission – specifically at the Mission Theatre on Johnson Dr. Our long-time vision to plant a church became a reality in 2016 and it has been amazing to see God work in new ways to grow his kingdom in our city!

I am married to Jenny (who was raised at Christ Church) and we have 3 fun children. They keep us very busy. I love being outside (hiking or hunting), shopping for sneakers, drinking tea, and hanging out with friends.
