Biography

Peter Eavis worked as a financial reporter for 13 years, before becoming a full-time pastor of the Vineyard West Side church in New York City in 2006. The last publication Eavis worked for was TheStreet.com, where his main focus was uncovering accounting ruses carried out by U.S. corporations. He gained recognition for his early and consistently skeptical coverage of failed energy giant Enron. Eavis also won a Gerald Loeb award -- a sort of Pulitzer for financial journalists -- in 2005 for his work on Fannie Mae. Eavis, a 40-year-old Briton, has also written for The New York Times, and The New Republic. He is married with two children, lives in New York City and his NYC Pastor blog can be found at eavis.com.
