Servant Leaders

Our Staff

From the Heart

Serving and Loving

“Follow me as I follow Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1 As the staff of Prince of Peace our first call is to serve and love God–we work to grow as disciples. From this foundation we seek to serve and love you to help you grow in your relationship with the Father. And we want to have fun doing this all together. So join us in God’s work in this world. Come, follow us as we follow Jesus. Together let us be and make disciples.

Pastoral Leadership

Pastors Knox Herndon; Scott Ness; Assistant to the Bishop for Missions, Gemechis Buba, and Pastor Justin Kollmeyer gather following the installation of Pastor Scott as the associate pastor at Prince of Peace on May 12, 2019.

From the Heart of the Father

Pastoral leadership is a calling into the office of Word and Sacrament Ministry. This means that of all the things a pastor is called upon for, preaching the Good News of Jesus and presiding over the mysteries of God’s work through water, bread, and wine takes precedence. Loving and serving Christ and assisting in the growth and maturation of God’s people at Prince of Peace (and beyond) is our joy. Any one of us would be thrilled to set a time to sit and talk with you about what is going on in your life and ways to further our faith and dependence upon Jesus for daily life.
