From her PIF as she describes preaching: “It’s the marriage of my intellect and dramatic skill; my sense of justice and my love for others; my ability to dive deep into scripture, and my ability to let go and listen for God’s voice. All of these things are gifts from God that I get to use for now, and I love to use them.”

Peter’s most recent ministry position was serving as the Conference Director at The Hive, a Center for Contemplation, Art and Action in Ohio.

Peter believes that education and transformation go hand in hand and that intergenerational activities are vital.
