Larry Peck was born in Naples, Italy, to an Italian mom and an American dad. His dad served in the U.S. Navy so Larry spent about ten years of his early life in Italy. On his spiritual journey, Larry came to a crossroads during his junior year of college and made a decision to follow Jesus Christ; since then he hasn’t looked back. Larry’s hobbies include photography, a skill put to good use in Rome! In addition to being the Director of Rome with Purpose, Larry teaches the Cultural Perspectives course. Larry and his wife, Debbie, have two adult children. They worked as missionaries in Europe for 16 years (1999-2015) after living in Rhode Island for 19 years.
