Peter Barger and his wife Kim have two teenage daughters, Sophie and Lily. They live in Austin and are active members of their parish church. Peter previously served as President of the Board of Directors of Down Home Ranch.
Peter works as an IT Director, and is an acknowledged leader with over 20 years in the field. Experience and insights gained over the years in exceeding client expectations, providing leadership, mediation, and thriving in a challenging, changing environment have also proven to be of benefit in the pursuit and fulfillment of his second vocation: Peter is currently in the last year of seminary studies to be ordained to the permanent diaconate in the Catholic Church.
Peter is an active member of the Knights of Columbus and spent a week with other Knights from St. Louis King of France in Austin as part of a rescue team following the devastation of the Texas coast by Hurricane Harvey.
Prior to beginning his five-year diaconate training Peter was Chairman of the Board of Directors for Down Home Ranch, Inc. Peter has served as Director on ACTS retreats, has been President of the St. Louis Catholic School Board and is well known for participating in many other ministries within his parish.
