For the last twenty years, Peter has served in a variety of capacities in local churches. In his recent book Authentic Christianity: Why it matters for followers of Jesus, he opens up about his experience growing up in the church, his time in the ministry and his growing awareness of the need for authenticity in his faith and relationships that was desperately lacking. His journey toward spiritual, mental and emotional health involved the hard and messy road of confronting his own pretenses and learning how to develop healthier relationships and faith in God rooted in authenticity.
In addition to being a writer, Peter has spent the last twelve years as a public school educator. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a concentration in pastoral ministry from Life Pacific College (now Life Pacific University) and his Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in the Social Sciences from George Fox University.
He and his wife Naomi are based in the Greater Seattle area.
