Cathy and her husband, Pastor Joe Peterson, have been founding pastors at Christ Church of Palm Harbor, FL, for the past 16 years. Prior to taking that pastorate, Cathy served alongside her husband as evangelists. Pastor and Cathy traveled both across the nation and to many destinations around the world preaching the gospel and singing. She was gifted as a writer, poet, singer, song-writer, musician, a powerful witness, a strong pastors’ wife, an outstanding servant of her God, and perhaps one of the best organ players ever. She is going to be greatly missed by the many whose lives she has touched. She is survived by her loving husband, Joseph L. Peterson; her brother, David LeCompte; sister, Jennifer Evans; nephew, Josiah LeCompte; niece Elizabeth LeCompte; and countless spiritual sons and daughters throughout the world.
