Peter was born on Sumatera Island in Indonesia. Although his parents were not Christians, they enrolled him in a church-run school, where he encountered Jesus Christ. He surrendered himself to this Christ in a youth retreat when he was thirteen. There was a time when he quit church, but when he finally came back, the Lord spoke to him through a sermon on the prodigal son. He has never left since, by God’s grace.
Even though he had been called to be a full-time minister since his teen years, he did not start his training until his mid-thirties when he was convicted to the call of counseling ministry. Through his studies at Westminster Seminary in California and Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, he was trained to put the ministry of the Word into people’s lives. Having finished the Master in Theology program with an emphasis on the New Testament, he furthered his studies with a Doctor of Ministry degree in Pastoral Counseling.
Peter is married to Dewi and, in their free time, they enjoy traveling together.
Young was originally from the Washington DC Metro Area. While he grew up in a Christian home and in an environment where the gospel was preached and taught, he did not accept the Lord until his college years. The Lord called him into ministry during his junior year of college where he eventually decided to study at Westminster Theological Seminary.
He has ministered in Southern California, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. He and his family are excited to call Rochester their home now. Young began his ministry at RCCC in October 2019 to shepherd the English Congregation.
