He moved to Alliance in 1984 to become a research engineer for Babcock and Wilcox Alliance Research Center. He later took an instructor position with Stark State College in the Mechanical and Design Engineering Technology department. In 1999, Dykshoorn became the senior pastor at the Alliance Christian Center. He has been married for 25 years to his wife, Kathy, and together they have three children.
