About Our Founder

The Rev. Dean F. Schultz

Worship Equippers for Christ was founded in 1996 by The Rev. Dean F. Schultz, an Anglican priest, who has helped to make the history and biblical dynamics of Judeo-Christian worship “come alive” for people from many nations and Christian traditions through multimedia assisted teaching and preaching, signs, symbols, ancient liturgies, the visual and performing arts, iconography and  psalmody accompanied by Davidic  and multiethnic musical instruments. 


Prior to founding Worship Equippers, Dean served as a missionary on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) in Washington D.C.,  as a church planting pastor and itinerant Bible teacher helping to equip churches for worship renewal.


Fr. Dean and his wife Glorianne (who often ministers with him) have been married for 44 years, have 3 adult children and 4 feisty grandsons!  Their special joys in life include hanging out with family and friends, sacred art and leading pilgrimages to the Holy Land.
