Rev. Dexter Brecht has been a part of the MCC movement for 25 years. He joined All God’s Children MCC
in Minneapolis in 1986. While there he served as Special Events Coordinator, Director of Worship and Interim Moderator of
the Council of Ministries. He attended United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in order to pursue his long-time calling
to become clergy. He moved to Baton Rouge, LA in 1993 to serve as Student Clergy at Joie de Vivre MCC and fulfilled his requirements
for MCC credentialing.
Pastor Dexter served as the Pastor of MCC of Greater New Orleans from 1994 until 2007.
He was also an active leader in the South Central District serving in many capacities through the years including District
Education Coordinator, District Conference Worship Coordinator, Nominations Committee Chair and District Committee Member.
One of his responsibilities as part of the District Committee was to support churches during pastoral vacancy. When MCC was
organized into Regions as part of the restructuring process he served as liaison to churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama as a member of the Regional Elders Advisory Committee. After the initial recovery period following hurricane Katrina
he served simultaneously as the Interim Pastor of MCC of Baton Rouge as well as Pastor in New Orleans. He then took some time
away from ministry.
In 2009 he accepted the call to serve on staff at First MCC in Atlanta as the Minister of Mobilization
where he assisted people in discovering their particular role in ministry and directed the Institute for Spiritual Growth.
He served there until accepting an 18 month appointment as the Intentional Interim of Spirit of Life effective June 2011.
Pastor Dexter’s primary responsibilities at Spirit of Life are to stabilize and strengthen our ministry and to help
us prepare to call a full-time settled Pastor.
