Begun in 1965 by Reverend John Garcia Gensel (now presided over by Pastor Dale Lind), ST. PETER'S CHURCH's music program offers Sunday musical services that aren't your standard gospel music fare (they call them "jazz vespers"), not to mention a yearly Lester Young Memorial Celebration. The idea of presiding over capricious folks spilling out from the clubs and into the church didn't bother the late Gensel: "That's the kind we want. The good ones can stay home."
