REV. DREW FILKINS

Drew considers it an honor and privilege to serve as Associate Pastor here at The Peoples Church. He is  excited about leading our Christian Education efforts - from littlest ones to the most senior and everyone in between. During his time as a pastor, Drew has found it most rewarding to help others learn about and apply the Bible to their own lives. His hope and dream is that we can continue to nurture an environment where faith, spirituality and the Bible can be discussed with openness and honesty.
