Rev. Peter Deberny grew up in Buffalo, NY. He graduated from Concordia University Nebraska in 2018 with an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. In 2022, he received his Masters of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO. Pastor Deberny then accepted the Divine Call to serve Grace Lutheran directly from the Seminary.
Pastor Deberny wanted to serve as a pastor as long as he can remember. He recalls witnessing the care and love of his own pastor at age 7 and wanting to serve as he did. While his primary focus is the ministry, he also has many hobbies. He loves to experiment in the kitchen, design computer programs, and spend time exercising.
“I am so happy to be here at Grace Lutheran in Mastic Beach. I wake up everyday knowing that our faith in Jesus is the most important thing we have. As Christians, we have hope in a future for ourselves and hope to offer others! I am here to serve God’s people here and throughout our community!”Rev. Peter Deberny
