Ty Tamasaka holds a Master of Arts in Christian ministry from the Pacific Rim Christian University, and Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Psychology and Religious Studies from the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
Ty has a passion for sharing God's Word in practical ways that encourage people to enjoy Jesus' grace and extend His glory. In addition to serving as a youth pastor at Journey Church Hawaii, he's been blessed to speak at local churches, conferences, youth, and men's ministries and has done guest teaching at Pacific Rim Christian University. In the marketplace, he's been a social worker and probation/parole officer for over a decade.
He created tytamasaka.com to be a place to collect thoughts about life, love, and leadership in the local church and to encourage people to serve Jesus in ways that are both culturally relevant and Biblically sound.
When he's free, Ty loves spending time with his family, reading, playing his guitar, exercising, and taking his Harley Davidson out on the road.
