Senior Pastor - Craig Peters
Pastor Craig never imagined he would, at this time in his life, become the first pastor of a young church like Prairie Bible, but he is excited to see where God leads! Pastor Craig is married to Lysia, an educator at Heritage Christian School. Their daughter, son, and their families all live in the Cedar Rapids area, and the Peters are thoroughly enjoying being close to their seven grandchildren. Pastor Craig and Lysia have been in ministry for four decades but continue to enjoy this grand adventure. As Pastor Craig is fond of saying, “Join us for the ride. It’s going to be wild. It’s going to be great. And it’s going to be full of Jesus!”
Associate Pastor - Billy Molinari
God brought Pastor Billy and his wife, Ryanne, to PBC in August 2021. Billy studied finance and played basketball at Western Illinois University, going on to work for Edward Jones as a financial advisor. After three years, Billy decided to pursue his passion for scripture, earning a Master of Divinity in pastoral ministry from Grand Rapids Theological seminary. While in seminary, Billy completed an internship with Harvest Bible Chapel in Spring Lake, Michigan before moving to Gilbert, Arizona, where he was the Director of Students at Christ Church. In Arizona, Billy met his wife, Ryanne, and the two moved to Cedar Rapids shortly after getting married. As a servant of Christ, Billy has been commissioned to preach the Word and earnestly desires a revival in the community (2 Timothy 4:2).

He cares deeply about reaching people through music, showing them the beauty of the gospel and helping them praise their Savior. Adam met his wife, Erika, while serving in college ministries. They continue to love and serve in student ministries together. Adam is overwhelmed by the love of PBC and looks forward to growing in faith as a church family.
