Pastor Rod Peebles hails from Michigan. After many years in an insurance career, the last 7 of which he & his wife Cathie owned their own business, Rod was called into full time ministry for the Lord.
Packing up all their belongings they headed to Winona Lake, IN to attend Grace Theological Seminary in 2010. After graduating in May of 2014 they moved to Toledo, OH to minister in the inner city, primarily to North Toledo, the most impoverished area in all of Ohio & Southeast Michigan.
Working in that environment was a huge learning experience for both Rod & Cathie and called for great trust in the Lord. Through relationships built during that time they were led to Bowling Green Grace Brethren Church (now Grace Church of Bowling Green) to be interim pastor until the church called Rod to be their pastor in April of 2016.
Rod & Cathie have 4 children and 10 grandchildren spread across Michigan, Ohio and New Zealand.
