—  The Lopez family  —

Peter, Denise, Petey, Josie


Peter Lopez, senior pastor of Maranatha Baptist Church, Peoria, Arizona, was born in McAllen, Texas.  He received his early schooling in public schools in Edinburg, Texas.

1988 was a turning point in Peter's life.  It was then, at the age of eight years old, that he trusted Christ as his personal Savior.  Christian parents and a faithful pastor were the major influences helping him understand his need to receive Christ as Savior.  Upon graduating from high school, Peter attended and played basketball for a public university in north Texas.  It was here that God began doing a great work within his heart.

Sensing God's call to ministry, Peter ended up at Indiana Baptist College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible in 2003.  He received a Master of Ministry degree from Pensacola Theological Seminary in Pensacola, Florida, in 2015. 

Peter married the former Denise Maddox of Bedford, Indiana in 2001; they have two children, Petey IV and Josie.

The Lopez family was called to Pastor Maranatha Baptist Church in 2015.  The entire family loves the church and desires a close-knit family atmosphere with a passion for following Jesus Christ.
