About Us

A bit of History …

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and College at Everton Hills resulted from a vision to become more accessible and relevant to our surrounding community.

The original congregation was started in 1964, located at West Chermside in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, and had an average worship attendance of 45. A few members took the initiative to plant a new community in the growth corridor towards Ferny Grove. At that time a small group met together for regular worship in one of the member’s homes.

In the early 1980s, these two groups stepped out in faith and bought a 10-acre lettuce farm in Everton Hills with the vision of building a church and Primary School. One of the classrooms in the early stages of the development also served as the new worship location until 1986, when the foundation stone was laid to dedicate the present Church building. We celebrated 20 years of our primary school (now College) in 2004. At the beginning of 2007, land was purchased at nearby Henderson Road for a secondary school campus. Our middle school took up residence at the new campus from term 3 in 2009.

Seven pastors have served at this location, the congregation moved to a two-pastor ministry team in 2001.

  • Glenn Schultz (1985 -1991)
  • Peter Thamm (1992 – 1995)
  • Dirk Willner (1996 – 2002)
  • Melvin Mueller (2001 – 2005)
  • Andrew McLean (2002 – 2007)
  • Rob Paech (2006- present)
  • David Schmidt (2007 – present)
