Peter preaching his first sermon at Grace

Peter first began thinking about entering into the ministry during his confirmation classes. He received encouragement and guidance from his pastors, Rev. Brad Kerkow and Rev. Dan Ruiz at Hope Lutheran Church in Leander, TX.

After graduating in 2018, Peter attended Bethany Lutheran College, Mankato MN, and graduated in 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history. While at Bethany, Peter also studied the Biblical languages Greek and Hebrew.

He also participated in the fine arts programs offered at Bethany such as organ lessons, choir, band, and theatre. Peter enjoys spending his time drinking coffee, cooking, and exploring the outdoors.

In the Adopt a Seminary Student project, Grace has adopted Peter. We offer financial support and prayers during his time at Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary. Peter is spending a month here at Grace, assisting and learning with Pastor Emmons.
