Meet Our Team

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

Donnie Peak

Executive Operations Manager

Donnie is a family guy who says that his wife, Candi, is his “rock” and his dearest friend. Together they have raised three sons. Quinton is in landscaping, Byron is assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of California, and Keldon, at 24, is the strength and conditioning coach for the Oklahoma women’s basketball team. Mom and Dad plainly did something right!

Like his sons, Donnie loves sports, although his favorite is football. As a sports-crazy kid growing up in southern Kansas, he played the game at every opportunity, dreaming of one day playing on Sundays. He graduated to
Saturday ball, playing running back at the college level. Afterwards, he became an enthusiastic spectator—albeit one with a lifelong commitment to working out and staying in shape. When he eventually settled with his family in the heart of Oklahoma Sooner country (OK City), he was able to cheer in person for his favorite college team. Happily, his recent relocation to Dallas brings him to the hometown of his lifelong favorite pro team, the Cowboys.

Donnie hopes to add a parachute jump to his varied experiences, and counts a trip to Jamaica as his best vacation.

Brian Hopper

Partner and Regional Manager

As husbands and fathers go, Brian is first-rate.  He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Stephanie, for 23 years now.  Their children are Caleb, 17, Claire, 15, and Patrick, 12.  Charlie is the family’s canine member.  Hanging out with this crew is Brian’s favorite activity. He and Stephanie both grew up in the Oklahoma City area and are surrounded here by friends and extended family.  Brian’s first job as a kid was mowing yards with his brothers.  If the yard had a pool, and its owners furthermore allowed the boys to plunge in at their labor’s end, the owners got a discount.

Brian’s love for the hometown people and their quality of life has led to volunteerism.  He serves on the United Way of Norman finance council, teaches 4th graders on Sunday at his church, and is a church elder.  He also cheers for the local university, Oklahoma, which is his alma mater.  His NFL loyalty lies farther afield with the Buffalo Bills.
