Peter is an author, educator, activist, faith crisis ally and a mentor leader for an evolving Christian faith. After serving local churches for most of his adult life, he began searching for, exploring and discovering healthier ways to practice faith rooted in Jesus’ teaching and self-sacrificial way of life. For Peter, this has meant intentionally letting go of harmful ideologies and theological frameworks he grew up with and learning to embrace a more thoughtful, honest and hopeful vision for following Jesus today that includes the outsider, the marginalized, the forsaken and the forgotten. Along the way, he has stumbled onto the refreshing books of scholars, professors, theologians and Christian thinkers like N.T Wright, Peter Enns, Brian McLaren, Gregory Boyd, Robb Bell, Sarah Bessey and Rachel Held Evans, whose books have helped give language to a new and life giving way of being Christian in our world today.
Peter earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a concentration in pastoral ministry from Life Pacific College (now Life Pacific University) and a Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration on teaching Social Studies at the secondary level from George Fox University.
He and his family are based in the Greater Seattle area.
