Peter was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. He came to know the Lord at a young age through the faithful ministry of his parents and church. After finishing a BA in history at the University of Nebraska, he served on the staff of Indian Hills Community Church in Lincoln for three years and then earned an MDiv. from The Master's Seminary in Los Angeles. In 2010, he returned to Lincoln and was the Assistant Pastor of Training and Education at Indian Hills until answering the call to be the Lead Pastor of Central Bible Church in 2015.
Shortly after finishing seminary in 2010, Peter married his wife, Melissa. They have two growing and busy boys, Grayson and Paxson. Peter and his family enjoy getting together with people, playing sports and games together, and cheering on their beloved Huskers. If he's not at the church or with his family, you can probably find Peter chasing birdies at one of Kalispell's lovely golf courses.
Peter fills a number of roles at CBC, but his ministry here centers around faithfully nourishing the flock by preaching and teaching God's Word. One of the key verses in his own philosophy of ministry is 1 Timothy 1:5. "But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith."
Chad was born in Woodland, California in January of 1982. Being raised in a Christian home with faithful parents had a huge impact on Chad’s life. Chad came to know Christ as his personal savior when he was 5 years old through a conversation about hell with his mom. While attending the Master’s College in 2000 Chad met and began dating Danielle. In 2004, Chad and Danielle were married and in the fall he began his career teaching Bible at Woodland Christian School. For three years Chad taught a variety of classes in Woodland and worked as a youth sponsor at First Baptist Church.
After taking a few years off from teaching Chad was hired as the youth and associate pastor of Central Bible Church in 2010. Chad and Danielle moved to the Flathead Valley in the spring of 2010 with their two children, Jaden and Elijah. Since moving to Kalispell, they have added three children to their family, Maggie, Malachi and Blake. With a very busy schedule it’s hard to find some down time but some of Chad’s favorite hobbies are hunting, fishing, frisbee golf, and just hanging out with his family watching the Dallas Cowboys.

Born in upstate New York in 1959, Dale Gregory spent most of his formative years living in Miami, FL. It was there, at the age of 11, that he trusted Christ as Savior in a VBS meeting at a local church. Dale met his wife Joy, whose family is from the Kalispell area while attending Florida Bible College and the couple was married at Central Bible Church in 1983. After serving for 12 years in a traveling music ministry in North Carolina, the Gregorys moved to Kalispell with their 3 sons in 1995.
Dale joined the elder council in 1997 and has served as the church’s worship leader since that time. After spending nearly 40 years in the grocery retail business, he joined the pastoral staff in 2018. The Gregory's have been heavily involved in youth ministry during their time at CBC and, more recently, have led C Squared, our college, and career age group. They appreciate CBC’s commitment to verse by verse teaching of God’s Word. In his spare time, Dale enjoys hunting, fishing and cheering for his beloved Miami Dolphins.
