Today, Dean Johnson is the founder of Victory 4 Youth, an organization that has been inspiring people of all ages since 2004. He has carried a message of hope, acceptance and positive self-esteem to over 250,000 young people each year in high school and junior high school assemblies across the nation. Dean is also a team member of Radical Reality and has been traveling since 2009 with his mentors, Donnie Moore and Darwin Benjamin. With Radical Reality, he has had the privilege of doing chapel services for professional sports teams such as the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners, Anaheim Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Royals and is a part of the chapel team of the Oakland A's. Dean has also spoken inside the Folsom, Chowchilla and Soledad Prisons as well as having traveled on multiple occasions to Cambodia while speaking to the Cambodian military as well as the Royal Family, but he finds his greatest reward standing before students in public school assemblies. In 2014 Dean was declared by the Luis Palau Alliance as a ministry partner and recently was partnered with Gateway Church out of Dallas, TX to minister across Ireland.
Dean knows firsthand what it is to be lost with no hope for a future and full of pain. He has turned those failures into victories and is a true believer in the power of a dream. His desire is to win the lost and inspire the saints while emphasizing that Jesus Christ didn’t come to take away their fun, He came to take away their pain!
If you would like for Dean Johnson to share his message with your school, organization, church, prison, sports camp, youth rally or retreat, please use the contact information on this website. We look forward to hearing from you!
