Pastor Deane was called to Queensway Baptist Church as Lead Pastor in 2009. He was born and raised on the shores of Lake Erie in the small village of Port Stanley Ontario. Following a secular career that included 7 years in the radio broadcasting industry, Pastor Deane recognized a call to pastoral ministry that began at the rural, two-point charge of Dutton & Iona Station Baptist Churches in 2000.
He is a graduate of McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, Ontario (2005) as well the Arrow Leadership Ministries 27th Emerging Leaders Class (2011).
Pastor Deane is married to Annette and is the proud dad of Cassidy and Joelle.
When not doing “church stuff”, Pastor Deane enjoys listening to music (greatest album ever ?? Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys of course !!), tuning in to far-away shortwave radio broadcasts and cruising second hand shops for books to add to his personal library.
