About Rev. Peter van Eys, Senior Pastor

Peter van Eys Glendale United Methodist Church Nashville, TN

I was born in Nashville and raised in Green Hills.  I entered the ministry in 1979 and have served churches across the Tennessee Conference and in the West Ohio Conference.  I hold two degrees from Vanderbilt University (B.A. and M.Div.) and one from Boston University School of Theology (D.Min.).

I am married to Patti, a Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.), specializing in the care and advocacy of children and adolescents with maltreatment histories.  We have two young adult sons, David and Dane, who both live in Nashville. David is in the field of Transportation Logistics and Dane is a 3rd year student at Vanderbilt Divinity School.

I enjoy being with family, travel, hiking, and watching soccer.  I am looking forward to a World Cup final between the United States and the Netherlands…maybe 2018?  I consider it a privilege to be a pastor and desire that all might know God’s love and grace.
