Pastor Pete Kontra - Senior Pastor

Pastor Pete Kontra and Family"Hello! Thanks for stopping by our website. Now that you have seen the virtual me, I would love you to come to Hempfield so I can meet you face to face. I have been in ministry for many years now, and God has given me a deep love for Christ and a passion for His Church to grow deeper and broader in living and sharing His love with everyone.

"My family and I (wife, Shelley, and children, Zach and Sara) love Hempfield because it is an alive church that loves God and each other and has fun as we serve others along the way. You might see me behind the drums in the praise band, or probably somewhere outside, walking, hiking, and exploring this beautiful countryside God has given us.

"I am usually in my office Monday-Thursday, so stop in, give me a call, or email me. If you have a question or a need, or just want to talk, please don't hesitate to connect. God bless you!"



If anyone speaks,
he should do it
as one speaking
the very words of God.

If anyone serves,
he should do it with the strength God provides,
so that in all things
God may be praised through Jesus Christ.

To him
be the glory
and the power
for ever and ever.

1 Peter 4:11
