Youth Ministers

Minister Author Dennis James Perkins is a native of Yazoo City, Mississippi. Upon graduating from Yazoo City High School, he attended Jackson State University, where he became a member of the Sonic Boom of the South Marching Band.  

After completion of an undergraduate degree in business administration, Dennis later pursued his master’s degree in community and agency counseling.

Throughout his adult life, he has primarily worked directly in areas involving children and youth from ages three to seventeen years old. As the years progressed, these experiences culminated in statewide positions where he had oversight of various programs that gave assistance to vulnerable families and troubled youth.  



It would be years before he would discover a closer walk with the Lord. Upon meeting Deborah N. Perkins (2018), his wife of twenty-eight years, a whirlwind of change took place in his life which led him to acknowledge, his spiritual calling into the ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through years of serving in numerous ministry capacities within the local church, Dennis and his wife, Deborah, were viewed as a team ministry by those who knew them best. From greeting at the front door of the church, to working in children’s, hospital, prayer, and other forms of outreach ministry; serving the Lord through serving his people remains as paramount today as ever before.  God’s Love is, and will always be the mandate, and context of any aspect of his service rendered within the body of Christ.  Dennis currently serves as a board member, elder, and in other appointed capacities as necessary at Divine Purpose Ministry, Mississippi.
