Pastor Peter Haas came to know the Lord while working as an EDM rave DJ in a nightclub. Since that day, he has traveled the world, sharing his radical conversion story and calling others to experience the same joy and power. He and his wife, Carolyn, planted Substance Church in 2004 and he has since written two books, Pharisectomy: How to Remove Your Inner Pharisee, and Broken Escalators: Funny & Frightful Lessons About Moth Eating and Moving to the Next Level. Peter also serves on the Lead Team of the ARC (the Association of Related Churches) and is passionate about music, film, and comedy.

Peter and Carolyn live in the Twin Cities with their 3 children, Lijah, True, and Eden.
