Peter is a native of New York with family roots in South Florida. He and Carey moved to Florence immediately after Peter finished work on his Master of Arts in Christian Education at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. They were here for 12 years. During that time their family grew to five not including James, the cat, and Kimberly, the dog. They and their three sons then ministered in a town nearby as the pastor and family at Swift Creek Baptist Church. We were blessed when Peter agreed to re-join our staff in November, 2006.
"Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.
And He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
Then the Jews said, "See how He loved him!""
