Peter M. Moon


Peter Moon was born in Nashville Tennessee, and was raised in Rockville, MD.  He graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle with a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering.  Following graduation, he served as a Naval Flight Officer aboard the aircraft carriers USS Kitty Hawk and USS Ranger, flying A6E Intruder aircraft and subsequently served as a flight instructor.  In 1988, he left the U.S Navy to attend Union Theological Seminary (now Union Presbyterian) in Richmond, VA.  Since then, he has served multiple pastoral appointments in Richmond, Fairfax, Farmville, and for the last thirteen years at Woodlake.   He has also completed a DMIN at Wesley Theological Seminary.

Pete has served in Conference leadership in multiple ways including tenure on the Board of Ordained Ministry and chair of the Five Talent Academy.  He has served as a delegate to General and Jurisdictional Conferences and in 2015 he was appointed as the Richmond District Superintendent.

He and his wife Lynn have been married twenty seven years and have five children: Lauren, Greg, Becca, Kristin, and Rachael.

In his spare time, Pete enjoys running, cycling, woodworking, and car repair.  He recently completed his first Marathon but is pretty sure this will not be an annual tradition.
