Don Peslis

Co-Founder of Conizo Living & Wellness, Pastor of Chapel Worship Crossings Community Church

 

Don Peslis has helped people build strong minds and bodies for nearly three decades.  After receiving his B.A. from Anderson University, he worked as Wellness Director at the Anderson Family YMCA in Anderson, Indiana, where he designed and managed health, wellness and community outreach programs. 

 

In 1998, Don led CHARACTER COUNTS! of Anderson as it began a journey as an “Education-based, Community-embraced model”.  Community involvement skyrocketed as Anderson’s National CHARACTER COUNTS! Week celebrations grew to reach over 25,000 concerned citizens – including students, parents, and community stakeholders.

 

In 2000, Don joined Anderson University as the Director of the Center for Character Development established by Governor Frank O’Bannon and Anderson University, while continuing to energize educators, students, and concerned citizens through the development of a Statewide Coalition. Much of Don’s work coalesced Hoosier educators, non-profit organizations, and community stakeholders to build broad-based community coalitions committed to developing the character of young Hoosiers. 

 

In 2005, Don completed his graduate studies with a M.Ed. degree in Teaching and Learning with a specialization in Character Education from the University of San Diego.  Don also served as National Faculty for CHARACTER COUNTS! providing character & leadership training thorough out the United States.  While celebrating 10 Years of Character Education in Madison County, Don was awarded “The Distinguished Hoosier” award, by Governor Mitch Daniels.

 

In 2008, Don moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to accept a position at SandRidge Energy, as Director of Community Outreach.  Since making Oklahoma City home, a new and exciting chapter began for Don and the family, as they began attending Crossings Community Church.  Dons involvement with Crossing’s ministries began to expand, joining Pastor Marty Grubbs and the Crossings Staff in June of 2012.  Don states, “It’s truly a ‘bucket-list’ opportunity to be able to do all the things I love…under one roof.” 

 

Don and his wife, Sandi, have eight children and make their home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  Don currently serves as Pastor of Chapel Worship Crossings Community Church.
