Greetings in the Name of Jesus!
My name is Peter Norland. I’ve been pastor at Covenant Community Church since August 2007.
Before coming to Covenant Community Church, I graduated from North Park Theological Seminary, in Chicago, a great little seminary in a great big city.
I have been married for ten years to my best friend, Christina. Together we have three children: Magdalen, John Paul, and Amos. This past year we bought a home near Jericho Center, Vermont. We love it here.
Together our family enjoys spending time in God’s wonderful creation, practicing hospitality, caring for a small parcel of land (ask me about our sheep!), and of late, doing some home improvement.
I love good coffee, crave interesting conversations, and often combine the two. Consider this an invitation! I want
to learn how to live well as a child of God. To that end I’m interested in theology, philosophy, ethics, free and open-so
urce software, science, literature, farming, the environment, business, politics, home economics, and just about everything else.
Growing up, I always wanted to be a farmer. Now, I get to “shepherd the congregation” here at Covenant Community Church. We are a unique community, real people trying to love God and one another in meaningful ways. Years ago, Covenant Community Church caught my eye and captured my heart from over a thousand miles away. Check us out—it could happen to you, too.
Peace to you,
Pastor Peter Norland
