I am Jacquie Dickensheets, a member of Peace and resident of Gahanna for more than thirty-five years. I am a retired elementary teacher and now stay busy with family, friends, travel, volunteering, working out, and appreciating life. My family consists of two married daughters, and three granddaughters, with a fourth on the way very soon.  A Path to Peace excites me because I am always trying to be the best I can be.  Having a holistic life with God by renewing my mind, body, and spirit can help me be true to myself and to serve God and others.

Michael Lester APTP GuideMichael Lester
I am Michael Lester and I’m the Minister of Music and The Arts at Peace Lutheran Church. I feel that what I do at Peace is truly a calling. Part of what I have done much of my life is coach musicians.  Many of the same gifts and insight I use to coach musicians are transferable skills to coaching people in any job and in every day life. I love the concepts of discipline and intentional practice. To get to a certain level on any instrument or a sport takes both discipline and practice. What is more important than our spiritual life?  My passion is working with people and I really want to help others reach their full potential.  John 10:10 truly resonates with me.  It says: “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance.”

I’m really excited about A Path to Peace and the opportunity to be a personal guide. As Pastor Kai, says: “God’s grace is the transforming power for a new or renewed life. Our role is to simply open ourselves to God’s energizing, renewing power.”  Amen!
