Rev. Peter Armstrong
I was born and raised in Washington State. I came to faith in Jesus at the age of 14 and that faith came alive while studying at Calvin College in Michigan. God called me to ministry and moved to Seattle to start a church and attend Fuller Seminary. I finished seminary and was ordained in 2008. In 2010, my wife Lily and I moved to NYC to start a church there. That was a wonderful experience, but in 2017 God called us back to Portland to serve as the lead pastor here at Parklane. It has been a wonderful church to lead and be a part of, both for me and my family. Lily and I have a 4 year old son, Silas, and a newborn daughter, Stella. My wife Lily is a therapist here in Portland, and also creates a lot of watercolor paintings for family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy running (I've completed the NYC marathon twice), cycling, listening to and collecting vinyl, traveling (I've been to 16 countries) and watching sports (diamond league track and field and MLS are my favorites). I look forward to getting to know you and hearing a bit of your story as well!
