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.
