Our Youth Pastor

Pastor Peter grew up in New Jersey where he lived most of his life before he moved to McConnellsburg in 2018. He enjoys movies, games, pizza, and hiking with his wife & dog. This
Jersey boy was raised in a wonderful Presbyterian church where he found a special connection to God through their youth group. He participated in it as a student, later as a volunteer leader, and eventually as the youth pastor! Having been nurtured and fed there by many positive relationships and experiences of mission, Peter discerned a call to youth ministry. After studying education and psychology as an undergraduate, Peter’s call led him to Princeton Theological Seminary, where he studied youth ministry and attained a Master of Divinity.
 
Even though his first gig was at his own home church, Peter says he feels every bit as affirmed and supported by the congregation and staff here at MUMC. Peter is excited to utilize his gifts for ministry in our community and feels blessed to have the opportunity to work with our young people as their Youth Pastor.
