Gaby Peterson was born and raised in Puerto Rico and moved Pennsylvania in 1997. In her adult life, Gaby has been an active member in a variety of Christian denominations, but claims her roots in the Mennonite tradition. She is experienced in working with music, youth and prison ministries, as well as missionary work in developing nations. She is now honored to serve as a deaconess at Arch Street Presbyterian Church where she hopes to serve as a community prayer warrior while building on the already existing women’s and hospitality ministries. Gaby has her master’s degree in health administration and lives in South Philadelphia with her husband, Lars, and their dog, Myshkin.
