Rev. Thomas Peetz
Thomas Peetz was raised in Neligh, Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska with a BA in Theatrical Arts. He moved to New England where he met and married his wife, Carolyn, in 1977. They moved to Tulsa, OK, where Thomas attended RHEMA Bible Training Center and graduated in May of 1982.
Thomas served as a staff minister in a Bedford, NH, church for five years serving in the positions of youth pastor, assistant pastor, and missions’ pastor. He left his position for the foreign mission field in 1988 moving his wife and three children, Nathanael, Natalie, and David to Haiti in the West Indies.
After returning to New England in 1989, Rev. Thomas Peetz began a Bible study in a private home in Concord which grew into Word of Life Christian Fellowship. He frequently traveled as a guest minister and instructor to the Domata Bible Schools all over Europe, Asia, and Russia. He also ministered in Peru. Rev. Peetz served as the R.M.A.I. District Director over RHEMA pastors in neighboring states from 2002 through 2006. Missions and community outreaches are still an integral part of Word of Life Christian Fellowship as they continue to look outward.
Rev. Peetz has God-given favor with politicians in the city, state, and country and has a strong voice for the support of Israel (and has visited Israel on a number of occasions). He has had opportunities to meet with presidential, senatorial, and gubernatorial candidates. He was asked to pray at the inauguration of former governor Craig Benson, and in 2006, was asked to be Regional Director for Christians United for Israel.
Word of Life celebrates over 17 years of supernatural ministry. Pastors Thomas and Carolyn have a strong congregation of over 250 people who meet in a beautiful, New England-style church building in the capital city.
