Dwight J. Friesen, D.Min.
What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it? It is like a tiny mustard seed planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds come and find shelter among its branches.
- Jesus as quoted in Luke 13:18-19
Dr. Friesen brings more than a dozen years of pastoral experience to The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology. Dwight was the community-curate of an Eastside emerging simple church for more than eleven years; he is licensed and ordained by the Christian & Missionary Alliance.

He earned his masters degree from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois and his undergraduate degree from Ambrose University College in Calgary, Alberta. He is active locally and internationally with missional and emerging church movements, serves on the “Faith & Order Commission” of the National Council of Churches
