Program Staff

Rev. Craig Ross

Senior Pastor

The vibrancy of life here at St. Peter’s makes my service on our staff a joy and privilege. Visitation, teaching and preaching are the ministries that feed my pastoral identity, as together our staff and lay members share in our missional calling … Building a community of faith by God’s grace.

Sister Dottie Almoney

Director of Education & Outreach

Our youth grow into faithful disciples through education, fellowship and service. I am also excited about the new social ministries in which we are partnering with other Manheim Township churches, such as Lydia’s Closet and Homes for Hope.

Heather Cramer

Preschool Director

I feel so blessed and excited to continue the amazing Preschool Program here at St. Peter’s. I am looking forward to working with the Christian education staff to introduce some biblical concepts to our Program. All 3 of my children have gone through St. Peter’s preschool and we have great memories from their early days here. This is the perfect age to teach our children to “love one another” John 13:34.

Dr. Adam Lefever Hughes

Director of Music

As the Director of Music, I help the St. Peter’s community proclaim the gospel story and share the goodness of God through worship and music.

Erik Teichmann

Contemporary Worship Leader

I’ve been leading music in worship since 2001, and I love to work with others to offer up our musical gifts to God. When I’m not playing guitar and most anything with strings, I build websites and help nonprofits tell their stories.

Cindy Geesey

Director of Children’s Ministries

As Director of Children’s Ministry, I am responsible for promoting and ensuring a faith-based education for children ages 2 through grade 4. I am blessed to have been given this opportunity to create growth in the area of Children’s Ministry.

Betsy Linn

Volunteer Steward

Service to others is one of the best ways we can serve our God. By giving of our time, we can participate in helping with many of the tasks needed to create a ministry for our community. I feel blessed to be part of that community.

Paul Schultz

Parish Administrator

I serve the Lord through administration – derived from the Latin word meaning, “to minister or serve.” I enjoy working with members in the care and operation of God’s house. If you have gifts or talents that could benefit your church, let’s connect! There is a place of service for everyone at St. Peters.

Sandy Shattuck

Parish Secretary

I’m glad for the opportunity to help and offer a source of support for the members and staff of St. Peter’s.

JoAnn Harriger

I love our dedicated staff and friendly church members.
