Early life and education
As a teenager growing up in Seattle, Treat was heavily involved with drugs. In 1974, at the age of 19, he entered a drug rehab center. During his time there, he became "born again" and began to learn how to "renew his mind" through the Bible, which he had accepted as the word of God. Treat then received his bachelor of theology and married the former Wendy Peterson (born January 27, 1957 in Seattle)  in 1978. Treat resides in the Seattle area with Wendy and their three grown children, Caleb, Tasha and Micah. Caleb is now married to the former Christa Bouchee. Tasha recently married a man, Moses Masitha, from South Africa.
