Our Pastor


A native of Reno, Nevada DeSean has been active in his church, community, school, and had an undeniable love for ministry from an early age. While under the leadership of Pastor Norris DuPree Sr., DeSean was given opportunities to expand his preaching and was trained in various areas of ministry. After successful completion of training, he was licensed to preach on October 17, 2004.

In June 2017 DeSean took on an 8 month role of Acting Pastor for the Second Baptist Church. After 3 months under his leadership, the church body asked to stop the 8 month process and call for the vote. On October 29, 2017 DeSean became the 8th pastor of the Second Baptist Church.

Our Vision

Our Vision Our vision is simple: “Changing lives and communities through a culture of caring and connecting people to Christ.” How do we achieve this?  By believing in the transforming power of Jesus through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. Through these methods, our hope is to see people experience a life-changing transformation through Christ and move into their purpose. When this happens, communities will be impacted and humanity is served. Through a culture of caring , we care  about everyone we encounter; treating them with respect, and preserving their dignity. We believe this demonstration of care connects people to the Jesus we preach and teach about, and is a testament to how we Love God, Serve People, and Present Jesus!
