Pastor Don & Cheri Peters  

Don and Cheri Peters have been part of Lifetree since 1996. Don has served as an elder since 1999, and they both have been regularly involved in Lifetree team ministries. Their heart is to see a generation of hungry Christ-lovers awakened, and risen up, passionate to seek God’s presence, and ready to proclaim and demonstrate His Kingdom to our region and our world.

Don and Cheri also share a passion for national and global ministry. They have led Lifetree’s annual worship and ministry outreaches to the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation in South Dakota since 2003. They also participate in evangelistic and leadership speaking opportunities in Mexico, the Philippine Islands, South Africa, Mozambique, and Swaziland in partnership with Fountain of Life Ministries of Middletown, Pennsylvania. 

Don and Cheri have three daughters – Jaimie, Cali, and Sara (on left in photo), and four grandchildren.

Joe Coffman
Joe has been working in ministry in various capacities for all of his adult life. He has gained many experiences, and has a very strong passion for small groups and discipleship. He often calls small groups the “second wing of the church,” a phrase he got while learning of small groups and taking many classes on the topic. He has a desire to see people excel to their potential in their walk with Christ, and wants to see the church prosper in that ministry. He is interested in all that God has for him and the church as a body, and wants nothing more than to see the marvelous works of God proudly displayed in everything he is involved with. His favorite scripture is Habakkuk 1:5.
His wife Chris often joins him in ministry. They have two grown children, Elisabeth and Matthew.
