About Engage

Engage exists to provide perspective on culture through the eyes of a Biblical worldview, showing how that worldview intersects with culture and engages it.

We are a team of 20-somethings brought together by a common faith in Jesus Christ and employment in our parent organization American Family Association.

Nick Dean

Writer For Engage

Coming to Engage by way of an eclectic past, Nick brings to the table a passion for music, film, coffee, camping, practical theology, the written word, justice, and Christ's love (in no specific order—he is an exhaustively passionate guy). As Engage Project Director, Nick is helping to develop Engage Magazine into a platform that communicates truth and grace with excellence.

Having had a rocky road to—and within—faith himself, Nick yearns for the skeptics, the hurt, the angry, and the culturally unwanted to know they are loved and treasured by the God who does not create unlovable creatures.  Nick is a self-proclaimed imperfect follower of Christ, perpetual learner of things, frequent victim of daydreams, and occasional writer of words. He harbors strong feelings against wearing socks that match, and also laughs at his own jokes way too often.

His most recent adventure is being married to the love of his life and beginning a freelance business. You can find more information on his site.
