Welcome Pastor Kelly W. & Lanette Peavey

Apr. 29, 2021 @ 5:55 pm

Pastor Kelly was born and raised (mostly) in Iowa. He is a graduate of Newton High School, Grand View University (Business Administration/Computer Information Systems), and Iliff School of Theology (Master of Divinity). He has been married to Lanette since 2007, and between them they have four biological children, one bonus child, four grandchildren, and two dogs (an Akita and a Border Collie). Lanette was also born in Iowa, is a graduate of Midland High School, Kirkwood Community College (Accounting), Northwest Missouri State University (Accounting), and University of Iowa (Business Administration), and is a CPA.

Kelly retired from the Iowa National Guard as a CW3 with 31 years of service, 29 of which were in a fulltime status of one sort or another. Lanette has worked a variety of accounting related jobs from entry level through controller throughout her career, and most recently has been working as an accounting contractor. Kelly’s first appointment was at the Good Shepherd Parish, a 3-point charge in south central Iowa serving Agency, Batavia, and Eldon, beginning in 2017.

They enjoy traveling, going to movies, and playing board games together (especially if it’s a trainthemed game for Lanette). They have both been active in community theatre in the past (especially Kelly). Kelly also enjoys sci-fi/fantasy films and novels and things of a “techie” nature. Lanette enjoys landscaping and remodeling.
