Pastoral Staff:
Our pastoral staff at St. Peter’s are the lead equippers of our church body. They teach, preach, lead, and care for the people of our church. We believe that God calls elders  to serve as the spiritual overseers of the church, and we believe that all of our elders (volunteer and staff) serve in this vital role. However, our staff elders prioritize equipping others for gospel ministry in addition to their other ministerial duties. 
Administrative Staff:
Our administrative staff at St. Peter’s help our community to stay organized and help to make effective communication happen week in and week out.
