It has been my privilege to assume the role of the Illyricum Movement (and Witness Mongolia) treasurer since mid-2016. I served as treasurer for a church for over twenty years. The essential qualification to do the treasurer work is dependence on Jesus Christ. I pray that Jesus will continue to build His church and that the body will submit to Jesus. I have been married for 45 years and have three adult children and one grandchild. I live in north Seattle and am retired. I have taught high school math and science, worked in a medical office doing accounting work, and I was a Child Protective Services social worker for the state of Washington for 28 years.
Dan Peterson, husband of Deb, father of Kate and Daniel, grandfather of 4. He is a pastor of St. Lucas Community Church in Lake Elmo, MN. He enjoys fishing, hiking, basketball, and reading and watching true inspiring stories. One of his favorite verses is Revelation 5:9 – And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by our blood you ransomed people from God from every tribe and language and people and nation…” Albania is one of those nations and he is glad to be a part of the Illyricum Movement.

He’s married to Brenda and together they have two children Jacob and Katie (son-in-law, Jeff) and two beautiful granddaughters, Hailee and Tenlee.

He and his wife fell in love with Albania on their first missions trip in 2015 and considers it an honor and privilege to be part of the Lord’s work in Albania and Mongolia.
As you can see, God has assembled a diverse and talented group of people to shepherd this ministry. Each of us from different backgrounds and different regions of the United States, but each one of us united in purpose: “To plant and establish healthy growing churches in the nations of Albania and Mongolia and beyond.”
