She was raised by missionary parents, on the mission field. Well actually, it was wilderness and swamp, but still a mission field, nonetheless. When Peppi was a young child, living in Houston, Texas, her family sold their "dream home" with most of their possessions, and purchased a mobile home. They did this in faith, so they would be ready to go whenever God opened the door. A short time later, God led her parents to bring her family to Mobile, Alabama, to start Mission of Hope Ministries, Inc., a Christian 90-day, alcohol and drug rehab program for male addicts in Mobile, AL. This is where she spent the remainder of her childhood and teen years, right on the property with the mission's residents. What began with four men, has grown to house 125 residents today, including men, women and children, on four beautiful campuses.
For your mission event, Peppi offers message options to follow her comedy that remind us all that our mission field is wherever we are every day, and not just an occasional ten-day trip to someplace else. Her unique childhood of growing up on a Christian drug rehab, with missionary parents, years of organizing numerous mission projects, as well as leading teams to share the gospel both on domestic and foreign soil, makes her perfect for any congregation, WMU conferences, mission conventions and retreats for church planters and missionaries. Her captivating story of complete surrender will grip hearts and challenge your group to join God where he is already working. Her passion is infectious and is calling God's children to boldness in sharing the gospel, even when it's scary, dangerous or not popular.

"I had the privilege of working with Peppi on a mission trip. I was looking forward to a good trip with hard work. I knew that she had a good reputation for her comedy, but I didn’t anticipate just how thoughtful, deliberate and charming this woman of God is. Sharing anecdotes of God’s work in her life, her family’s ministry journey and her trademark homespun humor and wit, Peppi entertained and connected with everyone in attendance – young or old; single or married; male or female; attendee or event planner. Her stories, timing, singing, multimedia show...just all of it was truly special to behold - not to mention HILARIOUS.– I highly recommend Peppi!” ~ C. Reed; Headmaster North Mobile Christian School; Teaching Pastor, Redemption Church, Saraland, AL.
