More about Dr. Friesen: Associate Professor of Practical Theology Dwight Friesen, D.Min, brings decades of missional pastoral experience to his work at The Seattle School. He was the community-curate of an Eastside emerging simple church for more than 11 years. Formerly ordained by the Christian & Missionary Alliance, Dr. Friesen surrendered those credentials in solidarity with women seeking ordination. He is a liturgical Anabaptist with progressively Evangelical and emergent sensibilities actively seeking to root his faith practice within place while linking globally with others who are seeking to live into their contexts.

Dwight earned his Doctor of Ministry degree at George Fox University, where his dissertation research focused on the development of a relational hermeneutic toward connective church leadership and ecclesial structure. He earned his master’s degree from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, and his undergraduate degree from Ambrose University College in Calgary, Alberta. Dwight is active locally and internationally with contextual missional church movements, and served for a number of years on the “Faith & Order Commission” of the National Council of Churches. He is co-founder of the Inhabit Conference.

Dwight, his wife Lynette, their son Pascal, and their dog Jack live in the Lake Hills neighborhood of Bellevue, Washington. Dwight blogs irregularly at
