About Pete

Pete exudes a passion for God’s work in the world, trusting the Spirit to guide the church and ministry organizations to live into God’s future. Through the death of his mother as an 8-year-old and the death of his wife in 2015, Peter remains convinced that nothing, even death, can stand in God’s way. If God has a vision for the church, God will raise up the leaders and the funds to make it happen. All things are possible.

Pete, an ordained pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) holds the Certified Fund Raising Professional Certification. His ministry experience includes ten years in synodical leadership in his twenty-five years of ordained ministry.

His congregational experience includes rural ministry at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Benson, Illinois and Mission Development / New Start ministry at Peace Lutheran Church in Eyota, Minnesota. In his time in Eyota, the congregation grew from $40,000 in annual giving to the capacity to build a first church structure.

Pete lives in Rochester, MN with his wife Danielle and two very enthusiastic Springer Spaniels.
