Dr. Beckermeyer's interest in visual arts, technology, and science began during his undergraduate years in 1974 while working for A.J. Foland's photography store in Detroit. Since graduating in 1995 from IU/PUI in Indianapolis with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, he has faced many opportunities and challenges in mobile dental technology while doing humanitarian dental services overseas. His passion and commitment for "tithing" his time has taken him into a fulfilling partnership with AMEN members and others. Together they have spread healing and the gospel taking him from Mongolia to the Philippines and from Kenya to South Africa.
