Pastor Vincent Dehm can best be described as a passionate pragmatist, which is one of many ways to say he puts what he believes in his heart into action. He has an innate ability to convey positive, insightful and attainable messages that cross gender, ethnic and religious lines.
He is the lead pastor of the culturally diverse, Recreation Church, located in the Park Heights community of Baltimore, MD. His vision for the church is to introduce as many people as possible to the redeeming savior of the universe, Jesus Christ.
He was born and raised in North Carolina, where he wrestled throughout high school and into his sophomore year of college. It is worth noting that wrestlers are known for their work ethic, attention to detail and ability to focus on long term goals, all traits that serve Pastor Dehm well in his walk with God. He received a calling by the holy spirit at the age of 12, as he states, “It was God’s audible voice foretelling my path into ministry.” It was a calling that came to fruition soon after a four-year tour in the Army.
There is a quote ‘behind every great man there’s a great woman’ a saying that is befitting his strong, beautiful wife, Tracey, who has been by his side since 1989. Together they have raised three kids, two daughters and one son, all college educated, thriving adults.
His personal mission is to pursue God with everything he has and to make sure everyone he comes in contact with knows they are loved. Time and schedule permitting he is available to come and deliver presentations with Grace as the foundation to congregations, organizations and universities.
