Norm Hastings

Norm Hastings, the creator of Rest Easy Ministries, started playing the piano at the young age of 8 yrs old and it wasn't long before it became evident that he had been given a special gift from the Lord in his playing this is still true today. At the age of 13 he was asked to play for a local church and picked up the music very quickly. From there he started writing and arranging songs of his own. In 1990 he took a class in electronic music and hence began his love for instrumental music and composing . In 1993 Norm attended Western Carolina university where he graduated with a Bachelor's in music with an emphasis on composition and performance.

In 2001, Norm was invited to Mission Fuge where he discovered a love for sharing his music as a music leader. This led him the University of Mobile in 2003 where he studied to become a worship leader. In 2005, Norm began leading worship at Grace Anglican Church in Fairhope, AL and also started to lead worship at several churches that hosted "Celebrate Recovery"..a program that emphasizes recovery from various issues, including drugs and alcohol. His involvement in these recovery programs impacted his music writing towards helping others find rest in their soul in troubled times. He currently works at Grace Anglican Church, maintains a YouTube page where his music is available, and does live streaming events to minister to others.


The purpose of this ministry is to use various forms of media that allows the Lord to bring peace, encouragement, and hope to those who are hurting or are in need. Norm also strives to write encouraging newsletters and offer his worship leading services at churches or functions. Ultimately, Norm want to share the love of Jesus to a hurting world using the musical gifts the Lord has given him.
