Welcome Pastor Cook and Family!

We are so excited to share that Pastor Joshua Cook has accepted the call to be our Senior Pastor!  He and his wife Emily have six children - Lorraine, Aggie, Seth, Marcus, Eldon, and Peter.   Pastor Cook spent time in the US Army after high school and serving time in Kosovo and Iraq.  During that time he received his B.A. from Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan with a major in Religion and a minor in History.  Upon returning from Iraq and receiving an honorable discharge he enrolled in Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  He graduated with a Masters in Divinity in 2008 with a major in Exegesis and a minor in Church History and received his first call to St. John's Lutheran Church in White Creek, Indiana.   He has served there until his call to be our Senior Pastor.  

The Lord has been faithful to St. Peter's and we praise Him for providing us with a new shepherd!  Look for Pastor Cook and family this weekend as they move in and attend Kinderfest!   Pray for them as they transition and pray for St. John's Lutheran in White Creek as they seek God's guidance in their search for a new Senior Pastor.  

Welcome Pastor, Emily, Lorraine, Aggie, Seth, Marcus, Eldon, and Peter!
