Rev. Chris Peters
Rev. Chris Peters, Head of Staff
“Rev. Chris Peters is a pastor who values gratitude to God, building relationships, and engaging our neighbors with a listening ear and extended hand. Chris has served PC(USA) churches professionally for eighteen years. He earned a B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of South Carolina – Columbia in 2004 and a M.Div. from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA, in 2014. Rev. Peters began as Head of Staff at Westminster on September 14th, 2020.
Chris previously served as (Generalist) Associate Pastor at Trinity Presbyterian, Fairhope, AL (an “artsy” coastal town near the Gulf Coast). He has also served faithful and vibrant congregations in Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA. Chris views his call a lived out in a variety of settings – from pulpit, baptismal font and communion table, to hospital bedside and nursing home, to adult Sunday School classroom and youth conference, to community boards and service projects, to disaster-impacted cities in the U.S. and with partner churches abroad.
Chris is married to Rev. Lauren Peters, a Clergy Coach and Consultant. They have two hyper dogs, Mobi and Jubilee. For fun, Chris enjoys exploring Lincoln’s trails, parks, and restaurants with Lauren, playing guitar, reading, and catching live music (including an embarrassing amount of Dave Matthews Band concerts over the years). While COVID-19 has suspended some of those pastimes, the Peters are excited to be in Lincoln and on this journey of faith and ministry with Westminster!”
