Heath Deen

Business Development Manager


Heath grew up a gregarious Louisiana boy, rooting for LSU Tiger football, and aspiring to someday be a missionary.  At 15, he took a life-altering trip to Venezuela.  The people there, with their “sincerity and authenticity,” completely won him over—not only to Venezuela, but to the whole of Latin America.  During the next several years, he took additional summer trips, primarily with missions, to that part of the world.  Eventually, he attended language school in Guatemala.  He also spent a year living in Mexico.  He’s been to numerous South and Central American nations by now and counts Chile as his favorite.  In that mountainous land, he is working to establish a language immersion school/Bible discipleship program.

Heath is married to Blanca, who hails from Mexico.  They have three kids—Hayden (10), Liam (7), and Valentina (2).  All are fluently bilingual.  Otis the dog is no doubt bilingual in really important words, like “walk.”

Heath is a volunteer translator at his church.  In his leisure time, his favorite activities are hanging out with family and traveling abroad.  His goals include getting the kids more involved in missions and, of course, continuing his work in Chile.

Educational & Professional Credentials:

  • Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication & MBA – Oral Roberts University
