Petersen FamilyBefore coming to Live Oak in 2018 Tommy Peterson served in non-denominational, Baptist, and Presbyterian churches as Pastor of Youth and Music in California, Colorado, Virginia and Georgia. He holds a B.A. from Moody Bible Institute Chicago and a Masters degree from Westminster Seminary California. Tommy is originally from Longmont, Colorado. He and his wife Helen have five children together.

Tommy's desire as a servant in the church is to see the marvelous, infinite, and matchless grace of God in Christ lifted up before anybody who will hear. He endeavors to open God's word in a clear and winsome way, to provide guidance so that people can see their great need for an even greater Savior.
