Vicar Kyle Brown         
Deaconess Intern Brittni Brown

It is with great joy that Brittni and I will be serving you as your vicar and deaconess intern. Brittni grew up in Tucson, Arizona, home of the famous Saguaro Cactus. She spent her first 18 years there until moving further north to Flagstaff, Arizona for college, where she double majored in Psychology and Criminal Justice. For one year after graduating she worked in Tucson as a case manager for those suffering from substance abuse and serious mental illness. However, the job was very stressful and she decided it was time for a career change. She decided to enroll at Concordia Theological Seminary for the Fall of 2014 to become a deaconess. It was there in Fort Wayne that she met me. I was born and raised just south of Fort Wayne. I spent two years of high school up in Marquette, MI before graduating and moving back down to Fort Wayne where I attended Indiana University –Fort Wayne. There I majored in German and had the opportunity to spend my last semester in the beautiful town of Freiburg, Germany. Upon graduating, I went directly to seminary. Within the first few weeks at seminary, Brittni and I were assigned to the same fieldwork church, 30 miles west of town. It was on these car-rides that we really got to know one another. We were married on September 3, 2016 and moved to Germany at the end of the month, where I am currently studying at our sister seminary in Oberursel. We are very eager to begin at St. Peter’s and very much look forward to meeting you all and serving alongside Pastor Amen and learning from him and from you.

Preschool/Daycare Staff

Tiffany Amoriello, Director/Teacher

Hello! I am Ms. Tiffany I would like to take this time to tell you a bit about myself. I grew up in Poynette and just currently moved back here to raise my three children with my husband of 10 years, Nick. We have Kamryn, Mason, Taylor, and another one to be born in the fall of 2017! Oh, and I can’t forget our yellow lab Bailey!!! We love to be outdoors and enjoy spending time up north at our cabin. I have worked in daycare for over 15 years. I started as a school aged teacher and through the years I have taught infants and toddlers, pre-k, and the last ten years I was doing in home daycare to be with my children. This move to St. Peter’s has been such a blessing. The children are wonderful, and I can’t say enough about the staff. Everyone here has welcomed me with open arms and I hope together with all of you, the staff, and the church we are able to continue the high quality of care.
