Our Staff

Pastor Peter Elliott

Pastor Elliott was born on February 11, 1984, and he was baptized on February 19th that same year. From his earliest memories, Peter has wanted to be a pastor. He comes from a family full of church workers, and his favorite pastime is talking theology. If you ever want to sit down with a coffee and talk theology, he will clear his schedule! Pastor and his wonderful wife Valerie have seven children, and the whole family enjoys reading books, exploring new places, and playing games. Peter has served at Christ Lutheran Boyne City, MI, St. John Fraser, MI, and now Messiah Seattle, WA. He has a degree from each of our LCMS seminaries, most recently graduating with a Doctor of Ministry degree from Ft. Wayne. Feel free to reach out.
