Cheri Peters

Cheri Peters

President, Founder

Cheri founded True Step Ministries in 1994 after fifteen years of  inpatient psychiatric nursing in private and state facilities. As a licensed psychiatric technician, she specialized in addiction recovery groups and in art therapy.

Cheri has found a lot of healing through the arts. She especially enjoys painting. And she loves all kinds of outdoor activities including skiing, golfing, riding bikes, and working with horses.

Brad Peters

Vice-president, Co-founder

Trained as a classical musician Brad has spent the last 35 years playing in symphony orchestras across the United States. He is currently the Principal Trumpet with the Boise Philharmonic. Brad was Executive Producer for the Gene Harris Jazz Festival for 9 years. He has also taught at Boise State University and North West Nazarene University.

When he’s not playing the trumpet or supporting True Step, Brad is most likely on his bicycle. He participates in several long-distance bike rides every year, so he works hard to stay in shape.
