Welcome to the Peeke School of Mission
“Educating and equipping Christians in a community of learning and discipleship to participate in God’s mission of reconciliation in Jesus Christ.”
Dedicated in February 2001, the Peeke School of Christian Mission is the culmination of decades of commitment to missions by King University and in honor of world-changing graduate and missionary to Ecuador, M. Catherine Peeke.
Peeke courageously arrived in the jungles of Ecuador soon after the deaths of five missionaries at the hands of tribal leaders. She spent nearly 25 years in that village, resulting in not only the translation of the entire New Testament into the Waorani language but also the conversion of most of the tribe to Christianity.
To honor her devotion to “going” and “teaching,” King has instituted the School of Christian Mission.
