Dean and Laureen Byfield

Missionary, Europe and the Middle EastFrance

Dean was born in Jamaica and migrated to the United States with his family at the age of eight. They attended Bethel United Pentecostal church where Dean served in various capacities as youth pastor, singles leader, small group leader and Sunday school teacher. He also served on the New Metro District youth committee for many years. Through the years Dean has also participated in missions trips to Holland, Scotland, Israel, the Ukraine and Sri Lanka. 

In 2011 Dean moved to Columbus, Ohio, to serve as an associate pastor. In 2015, he and Laureen moved to France on the Associates In Missions program to serve as furlough replacements for Brother and Sister Brochu in the Paris Center church. They then transitioned over to the headquarters church in Melun where they currently assist Pastor and Sister Nowacki.

Laureen was born in Canada to John and Anne Nowacki. When she was four her parents were appointed as missionaries to France where she lived until the age of seventeen. During her time in France Laureen worked in many aspects of ministry including Sunday school, music ministry, outreach and church administration. Laureen then moved back to Canada to attend university where she received her CPA designation and worked as an accounting manager. During her time in North America Laureen involved herself in outreach and church administration. She still had a burden for the people of France and believed that God would someday open a door for her. In May 2015, that door opened when she and her husband were asked to be furlough replacements in the Paris Center church. Now she serves as a missionary to France and is very involved in church administration and outreach.
