Campus Pastor, Student Pastor, and Christian Speaker
Chip Dean has served in the capacity of middle school pastor and student pastor and is now the global student pastor over 4 campuses at LibertyLive.Church in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. He oversees several student leaders and trains, encourages, and motivates them to serve, teach, and love well. He is also the global campus pastor over all of the campuses as well as the campus pastor of Harbour View Ca-Campus in Suffolk, VA.
Church leaders reach out to request Chip to speak at pastors conferences, men’s conferences, Sunday morning services, and student events all over the United States. He is passionate about the Bible, evangelism, adoption, student ministry, leadership, disciple making, missional living and training up the next generation of ministry leaders. He jokingly shares that he’s been doing this a long time and has probably written a sermon on almost every Bible passage or topic there is. He is an anointed speaker whose purpose is to impact and influence the culture to think, lead, and live a gospel-centered lifestyle that makes disciples and lives on mission.
My ultimate passion is to see people saved, to encourage them to live the gospel, to inspire pastors to lead in a gospel-centered way, to motivate Christians to do discipleship, and to get believers on mission with the gospel!
Chip Dean grew up playing football, basketball, and baseball at Tuscaloosa Christian School.

“Our Culture isn’t the only one getting “fake news.” Tragically many churches are too. Blogs and posts are being taught above chapter and verse. Chip Dean is an Avenger of sorts against this travesty. His superpower is abiding in Jesus and having Christ’s Words abide in him. He teaches truth in love. The results are supernatural; lives are transformed for the glory of God and for the advancement of His Kingdom!”

“I recommend Pastor Chip Dean to speak at student events because He loves God with all of his heart and he displays it well. He’s very well rounded with the kids. I’ve gotten to co-host an event with him called Xtreme Winter with over 20,000 students in attendance and he relates well to the Youth today. He knows how to teach the word of God but make it relatable to where the youth can understand & apply it.”
