The Rev. Christopher R. Beasley, Rector
Christopher (pictured above) was called to become the Vicar at St. Peter's on 1 August 2014. He is a 2014 Graduate of Bexley-Seabury Episcopal Seminary in Columbus, OH. In June 2017, Fr. Christopher was enthusiastically voted to become the Rector of St. Peter's for an indefinite amount of time following his initial three year period as Vicar of the parish.
Christopher's passions are Care of Creation and taking liturgy to new spaces and configurations. He has introduced us to All Hallows Eve, Rogation Services, and Parking Lot Eucharists. You can often see Fr. Christopher working in our gardens, doing live videos from our apiary, or mowing the grass in his collar! He loves to spend time cycling the roads of Boone County and even conducts pastoral meetings this way!
Christopher is technically a Bi-Vocational Rector, serving the people of St. Peter's on a half-time basis while maintaining a secular career. He is normally in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He serves the Diocese of Indianapolis as a member of the Pathways Steering Committee and as Treasurer of the Waycross Board, the Diocesan Camp and Conference Center. He also served on the Transition Committee for the Search for XI Indianapolis.
Please call the parish office if you would like a meeting with Fr. Christopher.
Going forth into the world, we see God in our neighbor.
A people of prayer uniting in one Spirit-
- connecting caring and community service
- holding forth hope and healing for every day life
- dancing in the diversity of creation
- glorifying in God's wildly inclusive love
- confident in Christ Jesus our Lord.
