Katherine Peiper

Director of Children, Family and Youth Ministries


Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.  (1 John 4:7)

Hello!  I am thrilled to be serving God through the ministries of Children, Family and Youth at Wake Forest Presbyterian. By working at a church, I’ve learned so much about what I actually believe, and why. I want others to find that connection with God through the community of faith. The best thing we have going for us as a faith community, I believe, is the authentic relationship we build with God through learning from one another in love!  Our children learn by watching us be the church, so our goal as a worshiping community should be to authentically love, struggle, and grow together.   My undergraduate work was in journalism at the University of Georgia, and I have a Master’s in Education. My work has provided years of experience working with children and with youth from all walks of life. I am a huge fan of the written Word, chocolate, and very much enjoys watching my children grow into the people they are intended to be. My husband, Jon, works for the Department of Corrections as an Assistant Director of mental Health for the state. I have two very active children, Addie and Thomas.
