How much trouble do you think you could get into if you hit all the hot-button issues today — abortion, homosexual behavior, value-less sex education, socialist politics, and entrenched atheism? And yet that’s the job of a man who has taken on the roll of a modern-day John the Baptist: Bradlee Dean.
Dean, a rock musician, preacher, radio show host, and columnist, speaks to public high schools, colleges, at county fairs and at other venues. He encourages moral living and a return to Godly values, and to the principles promoted in the U.S. Constitution.
Here’s what his non-profit group, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, says:
You Can Run But You Cannot Hide Intl. is a non-profit organization that specializes in reaching America’s next generation through principles of morality, true freedom, and personal responsibility. Our mission is to equip our next generation with the Judeo-Christian values that made America great through a unique avenue of music and educational event forums in colleges, schools, churches, festivals, and arenas.
Does he get flack about it? Yes, from about every group he criticizes. And yet the general public — kids in public schools and many of their teachers and administrators — have gone on the record saying he’s great. J.B. Elliott, principal of Hoisington High School, Kansas, said,
We had the pleasure hosting the You Can Run But You Cannot Hide assembly in our high school. I believe this program is the most successful program that we have had. Mr. Dean and his band did an incredible job of getting the students’ attention through their musical performance. Once they had the students’ attention, Mr. Dean delivered a message like no other. It was straight forward and to the point. Our student body was involved and interacting with Mr. Dean mainly due to his honest approach and genuine interest in the students. If you are a school looking for an outstanding program dealing with drug and alcohol issues, character issues, and helping students to make good choices, I would highly recommend this program!
