Welcome to Pete Feltman : our new pastoral assistant for music

Pete started his ministry alongside us this past Sunday, October 7th.


This week he’s joined by friend Paris King joining him on the guitar!  Don’t miss the music!

Pete is a bay area transplant from Iowa.  He grew up in the Presbyterian church the son of a pastor father and an organist/choir director mother.  Studying theatre/communication/education in his undergrad at the University of Northern Iowa, he quickly realized how much the church meant to him and began a three year stint of youth ministry.  During this time he deepened his understanding of Jesus’ teachings and sought to show youth how to be a Christian in a materialistic, consumption driven society.  Ultimately, however, his heart is with the music which propelled him out of Iowa.   In the fall of 2007 he began his education at San Francisco Theological Seminary.  He chose not to pursue the ordination track and instead devoted himself to the music – singing, writing, playing, and teaching.  It is a difficult path, and he understands the concept of “grace notes” better than most.  Pete is excited to lead College Ave Pres in joyful (and sometimes somber) song!
