Pete began a 20-year construction career with a general contractor in Grand Rapids, MI, first as a common laborer, then as a carpenter apprentice, journeyman carpenter, carpenter foreman, and finally as a superintendent. In 1984 he and his wife, Darla, sensed the Lord’s leading to join with Continental Baptist Missions as missionary builders. The Ringelbergs went full-time on the field in 1986 and spent the next 20 years living in a travel trailer all over the United States building churches with CBM. Pete is a licensed builder in the state of Michigan and since 2006 has served in the CBM home office as Pre-Construction Coordinator. He also assists with the maintenance of the home office computers and server system.
