Pastor Robert Peterson
I am a patriot and proud to be an American! I spent almost eleven years in the USAF and had God not explicitly told me to get out of the military and go full-time ministry I would have made it a career. However, God had a better plan. So in December of 1992 I left the military and began serving the church full-time. Paula and I will have been married 32 years this August (2017). She is one of the hardest working women I know, and she loves the Lord and the church with all of her heart. I would not want to attempt ministry without her. We have two grown children. A son Robbie, and his wife Robyn, and a daughter, Amy, and her husband Todd Kitchens. They all live in Ardmore, OK along with our identical twin granddaughters, Avery and Sterling, who were born Oct 3, 2016 to Amy and Todd. Ardmore became our home in May of 1995 when we were selected as founding pastors of the New Hope Church of God there. We spent 22 years there learning, loving, and growing. Leaving Ardmore and the church was one of the hardest decisions we have ever made. What made it possible was the fact that we were confident that God had called us to Lakeside, here is Norman. Serving God and the church is just about all we know, and life couldn’t get any better! I believe that God has great plans for Lakeside, and Paula and I feel extremely honored to be part of that plan. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us. I hope you will be a part of it!
