About the Author
Casey Treat was born and reared in a suburb of Seattle, Washington. As a teenager, he was heavily involved with drugs and entered the former Washington Drug Rehabilitation Center, a Christian-based program founded by Julius Young. It was there that Casey was born again, called into ministry and began to develop his leadership philosophies.
Casey entered Bible college, where he met and, in 1978, married Wendy Peterson. They served in their local church, conducted Bible study groups, and toured the Seattle area with their musical group, The New Version. Casey also started a local radio broadcast and worked as the Associate Director of Washington Drug Rehabilitation Center.
In their last two years of Bible College, Casey and Wendy began to sense the call of God on their lives to plant a church. On January 6, 1980, Casey and Wendy founded Christian Faith Center and began to pastor a group of thirty. They were ordained in July 1980 by Dr. Fred Price at Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles, California.
In 1984, Casey and Wendy founded Christian Faith School for preschoolers through twelfth graders, and later Dominion College.
With the first annual Vision International Leadership Conference in 1985, Casey and Wendy launched Vision Ministers Fellowship. This organization provides support for men and women in leadership who want to grow and more fully develop themselves and their ministries through teaching, mentoring, and relationship building. Casey and Wendy Treat have been instrumental in helping to plant and support numerous churches through this ministry.
Casey and Wendy Treat and their three children reside in the Seattle area.
