Peter Berauer


Pastor Peter Berauer was born and raised in Mt. Prospect Illinois, just minutes from Living Christ.  In 2014 he married his amazing wife Tiffany.  Pastor Peter came to Living Christ after graduating from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in May 2016.  Two words give shape and form to his life:  Loved and Sent.   He believes he is Loved by God (His identity) and is Sent into the world (His purpose), as are all Christians.  Pastor Peter would love to get to know you and share with you the hope he has in Jesus.  He loves to talk about Jesus with both Christians who have known God their entire lives, as well as those who have no idea what God is all about.  In his free time, Pastor Peter drinks coffee, runs, rides bikes, and reads good books.
