Casey Mursten has served Duke's Chapel and St. Paul UMC cooperative parish since 2018.

Casey is a graduate of FL Southern College (Lakeland, FL) and Duke Divinity School in 2011. During her time in Seminary she took a class at Raleigh Correctional Center for Women and did a year of Clinical Pastoral Education at UNC Hospitals. Her chaplaincy area included the Burn Center and Emergency Department.

After graduating seminary, she went back to Florida, where she worked as an Associate Chaplain and campus minister at FL Southern College. She then served a two-point charge in the Gainesville, FL area. When she came to NC, she served at Oak Grove UMC in rural Roxboro before coming to Dukes Chapel. Her strengths include preaching and teaching God’s word. Her top Clifton StrengthFinder is positivity. 

Casey is passionate about the 4th Commandment. It's the only one that starts with "remember" maybe because we are forgetful people. Casey loves to hear about other people's Sabbath memories. Often they are strongly connected to food. Casey is married to Sid and together they have 3 dogs that they love very much!  

Casey was ordained in full connection in the UMC June 2018.
