Meet Pastor Bill Peake

William Peake has been our pastor for over 32 years. He grew up in an east coast 


Roman Catholic family and became part of the Reformed Church during college 


in Pella, Iowa. “Pastor Bill” is married to the former Susan Wiggins of southwest 


Michigan and they have 3 sons who have grown up in our church: Matthew, and 


his wife Vanessa, Benjamin and Jonathan. Pastor Bill received his undergraduate 


degree in communication and theater at Central College in Pella, Iowa. He earned 


the Master of Divinity degree from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in 


Dubuque, Iowa. Susan is the coordinator of Talented and Gifted Education in our local 


school district. The Peakes have been active in our community in school, civic events, 


community theater, hospice and hospital chaplaincy. Pastor Bill and Sue will be found 


wherever there is a need in our community serving and sharing their faith in practical 


examples of Christian love and compassion. While our congregation has only had 8 


pastors since its founding in 1893, Pastor Bill has led our congregation the longest of 


any of his predecessors.
