Bradlee Dean’s life prior to 1995 is best chronicled in his personal testimony of turning to the Lord, which he documents in “School of Hard Knocks.” Shortly after his revelation of Christ, Bradlee started pursuing fulltime ministry and dedicated himself to reaching youth right in the very forum where they were being deceived – public schools. In 1997, he founded the non-profit ministry You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, of which he is still the Executive.Director. In the past 12 years, YCRBYCHI has traveled t~ over 330 highschools in 22 states and has reached over 500,000 youth with a message of truth and hope.
In 2002, he took his message to the airwaves and started a nationally syndicated radio show, The Sons of Liberty. It’s a hard-bitting radio program which examines the hot issues of today, confronts the liberal media, and encourages people to re-establish the foundations of our country. Bradlee recently debuted on FOX News as a part of a radio extraordinaire guest panel on Fox and Friends, was featured on MSNBC, and has been highlighted as a top story in various newspapers and magazines across the nation, including The Weekly Standard out of Washington, D.C. Bradlee is also drummer for the second-best unsigned band in the nation called Junkyard Prophet, that purposely turned down 5 record deals in order to maintain control of their uncompromising message. Their music videos have reached 111 million households four times over internationally and debuted on JCTV as 3rd in the United States. Junkyard Prophet has sold over 40,000 albums in the Minneapolis area alone through grass roots marketing. Bradlee is endorsed by world-class companies such as Sonor, Buttkickers, Beatnik (including his own signature drum pad), Hornet Drumsticks (including his own signature sticks), and Soultone Cymbals. Bradlee’s most recent project is a mini-series documentary titled, My War, which he authored and is producer, director and star. He slings rocks at the political, social, and immoral giants of our time and confronts society’s ills in 8 hours of footage bound to leave your jaw hanging and motivate your heart to action.
In addition to this, he has spoken at countless churches, festivals, prisons, detention centers, radio and TV programs, and more. Bradlee is known most for being a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ who speaks the uncompromising truth in an apostolic and prophetic style. He is ordained as a minister both nationally and internationally, and is a graduate of the Institution on the Constitution. And even after all this, Bradlee’s most rewarding title and position is serving as husband and “Daddy” to four awesome little boys.
