His unique and varied background experiences have given him the skill set to work with leaders and upcoming leaders over the past two-plus decades.

He advises his clients on forming, developing, and keeping better teams, leading more successfully, and living with a heightened and increased Emotional Intelligence (EQ).
Peter’s Career from Photography to Ministry
“I was drawn to photography from the journalism side, and I had a very strong interest in people.” At the time, the church was looking for someone to work inside their youth program and decided to be the youth ministry leader in 1994. This slowly became a growing passion for Peter while at the same time his photography career started to explode. While working for national magazines, Peter was called to join the ministry, went back to school for his master’s degree in theology, and performed pastoral ministry for over two decades.
Heeding the Call as a First-Responder Chaplain
He and his wife wanted to get involved in his home township, Palmer Township and became a chaplain for the local fire department organization. “The more I worked with first-responders, the more I cared deeply about them.” Realizing firsthand the stressful work first responders do, Peter wanted to care for them in the chaplain’s role.
Listen in as we talk about the purpose of the First Responder Chaplain Corps, the origin and history of chaplains, and how Peter supports others in his chaplain system within the first-responder community.
