Who We Are
Hello! My name is Brady Funkhouser. My amazing wife, Andréa, and I are nestled in the majestic region of Northeastern Pennsylvania where I serve as the Next Steps Pastor at Parker Hill Church. Along with Next Steps, I also oversee guest services at my campus. In short, I am an equipping pastor and I love empowering the local church to be the local church like Ephesians 4:11-12 says to do. I write to document my journey of learning and leading.
In my free time you might find me hanging out with Andréa and our two pugs, reading Marvel comics, and watching Star Trek. I love breakfast diners, books, and comedy sitcoms.
Hey! My name is Karl Peterson. My wife, Elisabeth, and moved from the beautiful country of Northern Michigan to the cities of North Eastern Pennsylvania where I serve at Parker Hill Church. I am the Family Ministries Director at the Wilkes Barre campus where I love partnering with families to live a great story. I spend my time leading and directing our kids and student teams as well as teaching at our student ministry. I love helping people develop their unique gifts to serve the local church.
You can find me with Elisabeth and our Australian shepherdBrownie, catching up on superhero tv shows, playing Xbox or reading science fiction books (Ender’s Game if your looking for something).
