Peter grew up in Central Oregon, where he developed a deep love of baseball, camping, ice cream and cheese. Nevertheless, his freshman year in high school, through a student led campus ministry, he was introduced to a greater love, and came into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Through this same campus ministry in high school, Peter subsequently became acquainted with Alisa, who is now his wife.
After receiving a degree in Spanish from Texas State University in 2004, Peter went to work for Every Nation Ministries in 2005, helping to plant a campus ministry at his alma mater in San Marcos, Texas. He served as the Southwest Regional Coordinator for Every Nation Campus from 2008 until 2015. During that time, he helped plant The Springs (formerly Christ Community Church) on the campus of Texas State University in 2008, and has served as the church’s the lead pastor since 2009.
Peter and Alisa have the privilege of parenting four wonderful children: Haddasah, Asa, Alma, and Bethlehem (Beth). Without a doubt, every moment is a “more Jesus” adventure!
