Eric Peltz

Eric is a husband to Ellen, father of 4 children under age 6 (Theo, Henry, Eliza, and Waverly) and Associate Pastor at Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. where he has worked with the church’s Mission, Youth, and Deacon ministries since 2015. From 2011-2015 he served as Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in the rural town of Defiance OH, and he’s been involved in big and small churches in Joliet IL (his hometown), Bloomington-Normal IL, Michigan, and New Jersey. He graduated from Wheaton College in 2008 and received his MDiv at Princeton Theological Seminary in 2011. 

In his free time, he’s usually hauling his family to a museum, festival, zoo or splashpad in the DMV. When the silence creeps into his apartment around 8pm, he reads about organizational behavior, gets passionate about the newest podcast, and dreams about starting a social enterprise.

Eric has experience with content-rich group coaching on the topics of leadership covenants, governance/board right-sizing, relationship building, and the latest trends in faith formation and Christian education. He has individually coached pastors in several states on specific congregational leadership issues.
