Peter earned college degrees in Forestry & Wood Products and Biblical Studies. For the majority of his adult life, he served as a Pastor at Dayspring Christian Community Church, dedicating his life to church planting, pastors, youth ministry, and most recently worked with youth, young adults, and adults at Family of Faith Community Church. Peter has also worked as an Assistant Manager for Moore's Building Supplies, as a Manager for the Smith Dairy Company, and as a Claims Adjuster for State Farm Insurance.
Peter lived to demonstrate the radical love of the Heavenly Father that transforms people's lives. We are deeply moved to celebrate the life of Peter, whose main goal was to stitch together broken hearts and help people find their identity in Christ.
