Where it all started.
Dennis got his start in ministry at the age of 13, being involved with worship and music in his Twin Cities youth group. After making a deeper, personal commitment to Christ at a summer youth camp at the age of 15, he got involved more in music, missions and delivering short messages here and there in the Twin Cities before attending Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa immediately following high school.
Dana grew up in Princeton, MN and at the age of 7, a neighbor invited her to a Wednesday night service at “Open Door Alliance Church” on Hwy 95. Over the following years, God continued to touch her life, and at the age of 10, she gave her heart to Jesus Christ. However, as a teenager, she began to drift away from the Lord, and through a teenage pregnancy and eventually a divorce, she found her heart and Jesus again in a big way at the age of 21. She experienced firsthand how God can restore any broken life.
Our paths crossed.
Shortly after returning to Minnesota from Bible College in 1998, Dennis moved to Princeton to serve at a local church. It was here he met and married Dana after a long friendship and today, serve together as Lead Pastors of Souls Church!
They have partnered with the ARC (Association of Related Churches), while Dennis serves on the Board of Directors at Life Church (Eden Prairie, MN) and is ordained and credentialed through Harvest Network International.
Loving God, Loving People and Love Life.
The Calhoun’s love tennis in the summer, skiing in the winter, shopping, date nights together and time at Starbucks with friends as much as possible! Dennis and Dana reside just north of the Twin Cities Metro Area and have one daughter – Jasmine, currently studying business administration at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN.
