Commissioned Pastor

 

Peggy and her family have been members at DPC since 2000.  In 2016 she became a Commissioned Ruling Elder, which eventually transitioned into her position as a Commissioned Pastor in the Presbytery of Scioto Valley.  As a Commissioned Pastor, she is available to provide Pulpit Supply within the entire Presbytery, with the ability to preside over Communion, Baptism, Marriage and all aspects of a Pastor.  Over the years, Peggy has been very active in the activities at DPC, and serving on numerous committees to help develop the church. Family is her number one priority and greatest accomplishment, with three children and a marriage of 40 years.  Peggy and her family enjoy vacationing together – which generally involves being near water.  In her quiet time, which is rare, she enjoys reading, walking her dogs, crochet and watching movies with her husband and a big bowl of popcorn.  Peggy considers DPC her second home and is excited by the new and growing possibilities of the church.
