Born:  Minneapolis, Minnesota
Family Facts: Married since 1983 to Rev. Cathy Hasty, Director of Parish Nursing and Pastoral Education at Presbyterian Healthcare Systems. Two daughters Marie & Jeanine.
Education: D.Min. Columbia Theological Seminary; Beginning and Advanced Clinical Training for Pastoral Therapy at Presbyterian Samaritan Counseling Center; M.Div. Duke University Divinity School; B.A. University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire and Sophia University, Japan.
How I became a Christian: My parents raised me in Hopkins United Methodist Church (Minneapolis Minnesota) and I was very active as a child and through confirmation (2 years!) there. In college, following an exchange program to Japan, I was introduced to several area pastors who befriended me and I recommitted my life to Jesus and to being active in the church.  Seminary, my experiences as a pastor in congregations, my clinical training and my work as a pastoral therapist have continued to stretch and shape my faith in God.
How I spend my free time: Exercising, practicing a musical instrument, camping with family.
One way folks can pray for me is: that I be an instrument of God's peace in my counseling with all people.
