Rev. Mark Peters

Rev. Mark Peters is currently serving as pastor at French River Lutheran Church in Duluth, Minnesota. (Read about his path to get there here.)  He has served on the Board of Lutherans Restoring Creation since inception (2017) and was part of the original Steering Committee who convened in 2015.

Mark was the Executive Director for the Lutheran Coalition for Public Policy in Minnesota (LCPPM) from 1995-2013. Mark’s advocacy and education efforts at LCPPM focused on the passage of mercury reduction, renewable energy, local control, children’s environmental health (biomonitoring and health tracking – often referred to as tracking toxins) and Global Warming.  A significant part of this work has been to establish and provide faith-based resources to congregation creation care teams in faith communities.  Mark also manages his family farm in Wisconsin that has recently been awarded the Wildlife Habitat Stewardship Award for Richland County, Wisconsin for conservation practices and is a lifelong hunter and fisherman.
