He lectures and speaks in a variety of settings, including colleges, churches, mission conferences, the American Association of Christian Counselors World Conference and local businesses. His passion to support the work of missionaries and pastors has led him to serve as a consultant for Global Partners, a mission organization.
Peter has been married to his wife, Shawn Maree, for nearly 30 years. They live along the lakeshore in West Michigan and enjoy boating and many other outdoor activities as well learning and traveling together. They enjoy being a part of their adult children’s lives as they journey through each stage.
