The Peters’ family includes their three sons, Chris and his wife Susan, Jeffrey and his wife Zianna, Kevin and his wife Amanda, and six grandchildren.
I am 24 years old and striving each day to be closer to Jesus than I was the day before. In Dec. 2015 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a major in Marketing and a minor in Communication. I began my journey with the Custer Avenue Church of Christ a couple of weeks later on Jan. 3, 2016. Hinton, Oklahoma is my hometown where I grew up with my two brothers Matthew and Devin, and is where my two wonderful parents Jim and LaQuita Dixon still live.
Ministry was not always what I saw myself doing, but now I can’t see myself doing anything else. Seeing students grow in their faith, seeing the light bulbs come on, and seeing them truly desire to be disciples of Christ is what I am passionate about.
I am also passionate about hunting anything there is a season for (especially turkeys), bass fishing (especially if it’s in a tournament), and Sooner football.
Minister on Staff
I currently serve as associate minister for the Custer Avenue Church of Christ. I have been married to my beautiful wife Mandy for 15 years and have 3 awesome children, Braxton, Brylie, and Bryndee. I have a degree in Corporate Communications. We have served in ministry for a total of 13 years, 8 of those here in Clinton, OK. I began ministry working with youth and transitioned to associate ministry in 2016. I preach, lead worship, work with families, plan various events and direct a week of summer church camp. I have recovery experience helping people heal from hurts, habits, and hang-ups. I love serving in Ministry with Mandy and watching others grow in their faith and personal walk with God.
