Peter Brenner & Family
Peter is 54 years old and a 40-year student of the Word with a burden for the Body of Christ and a passion for the faith once delivered. At age fourteen, he found Christ as savior and quickly embraced the scriptures. It wasn’t long, though, before Peter found many biblical discrepancies in his home church which nobody could explain. After many years of frustration, confusion, and struggles, he ultimately fled to the scriptures for resolution in 2000. After many months, he found the biblical answers and forsook traditional church to follow Christ. Today, Peter endeavors to help fellow believers earnestly contend for the faith of Jesus solely upon God’s Word. He and his wife of 27 years, Carla, have three adult and married sons, with six grandchildren among them. Peter and Carla have attended three shindigs and have home churched since 2001.
