About Our Speaker… 

Dustin Hall 

Pastor Dustin Hall is the author of four books and is a sought after speaker nationally. He is known as a dynamic, and articulate communicator who can make complex topics accessible and understandable for everyone. He and his wife, Kelly, met in their hemetown in upstate New York, where they fell in love, were married, and had four beautiful children. They now consider themselves blessed to call Minneapolis and the Southview church their home.
