Coach Galen

the coaching practice of Galen Hiestand


Dr. Galen Hiestand offers a broad range of knowledge and experience to his coaching clients. For fifty years he has served as mentor, pastor, corporate executive, consultant, administrator, international leader, and advisor to people in all walks of life.

Embracing My Life is the heart of Galen’s passion.  Clients discover through spiritual practices who they are designed to be and what they are called to do. They learn to listen to their heart, believe in their resourcefulness, and creatively embrace their God-intended life.

Clients face their fears and experience the freedom and fullness of life.  Each client is unique and is assisted with indirect self-discovery using the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, DISC, Spiritual Gifts, PRO Development, and Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis tools; and direct discovery through personal interaction with the Creator God.

Married for forty six years, Galen and his wife Carol have enjoyed living in Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Illinois with their three sons (now married to wonderful daughters-in-law). They have ten grandchildren.

He is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, Wheaton College (Bachelor of Arts in Social Science), Trinity Divinity School (Master of Divinity), Wheaton Graduate School (Master of Arts in Communications), and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary (Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Transformation).
