About Peter Soli workshop leader
Central to my call to ministry has been my desire to make a positive difference in people's lives and in the world. I try to pattern my life and work around St. Francis of Assisi's wisdom “Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words.”
My interests in theology, family systems, peace making, and facilitation have been bolstered by the many opportunities I have enjoyed in 25 years of ordained ministry. These have included 11+ years as pastor in four different congregations; 10 years as an intentional interim minister in eight different congregations, and 4 years as assistant to the Bishop and Director of Evangelical Mission in the Western Iowa Synod. These same interests are filled as I assist leaders and congregations in times of transition, conflict, and difficult change.
