It was only fitting for him to go from City Church to Second City Church.

Peter loves living in the city, where so many lives intersect. People who work at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building walk the same streets as those who live at the Bethesda Mission; where he meets some of the same people at the Broad Street Market and walking along Riverfront Park. Peter loves food (cooking, eating, reading and talking), biking, music, books, his dog, and the list goes on. He would love to get together with you!
