Pastor Von Peaks is a native of Columbus, Ohio. He has enjoyed 25 years of marriage to his lovely wife Terri and is the father to a 17-year-old daughter. He was raised in church and came to full surrender to the Lord in 1986 at the age of 25. He received the in-filling of the Holy Spirit the following year along with his call to the ministry. After much resistance, he finally accepted the call and moved out in obedience to the Lord, and now chronicles over 23 years in ministry.
He is a graduate of Central High School and the Southeast Career Center of Columbus. He went on to attend the Ohio State and Franklin Universities of Columbus and focused on electrical engineering and business. He left these to become a graduate of the Gospel Lighthouse School of Ministry, the Ohio Diocese School of Biblical Theology, both of Columbus, Rocky Mount Christian Bible College of North Carolina (Bachelors of Theology) and Tabernacle Bible College and Seminary of Tampa Florida where he received his Doctorate of Religious Philosophy.
