Peter was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. He came to know the Lord at a young age through the faithful ministry of his parents and church. After finishing a BA in history at the University of Nebraska, he served on the staff of Indian Hills Community Church in Lincoln for three years and then earned an MDiv. from The Master's Seminary in Los Angeles. In 2010, he returned to Lincoln and was the Assistant Pastor of Training and Education at Indian Hills until answering the call to be the Lead Pastor of Central Bible Church in 2015.
Shortly after finishing seminary in 2010, Peter married his wife, Melissa. They have two growing and busy boys, Grayson and Paxson. Peter and his family enjoy traveling, playing sports and games together, and cheering on their beloved Huskers. If he's not at the church or with his family, you can probably find Peter at one of Kalispell's lovely golf courses chasing birdies.
Peter fills a number of roles at CBC, but his ministry here centers around faithfully nourishing the flock by preaching and teaching God's Word. One of the key verses in his own philosophy of ministry is 1 Timothy 1:5. "But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith."
