The Rev. Peter K. Ackerman
(The Reverend Peter Ackerman - received is Masters in Divinity Degree from the Virginia Theological Seminary in 2007, the same year he was ordained to the priesthood.  Fr. Peter lives in Northern Virginia with his wife of 25 years, Marie, and their two adult children (one of whom is away at college!).  Fr. Peter grew up in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley and first followed in his parent's footsteps working in the television industry on both sides of the camera.  A life long Episcopalian, Fr. Peter discerned a call to ministry and, along with his family moved to Virginia in 2004 to attend seminary.  With the offer of a local job upon his commencement, Fr. Peter's Bishop in the Diocese of Los Angeles released him and thus he and his family happily remain in this area.  After serving as an Associate Rector for four years, Fr. Peter accepted the call to become the Rector of St. Christopher's Church in Springfield, where he happily journeys with the congregation and helps direct people to see how powerful a presence God is in their lives.)
