More About Pete

Meet Pete

Through the Fire is Pete Dechat’s first book. A labor of love by a man who went from wanting to be a rock star to telling everyone he can about the Creator of the stars in the heavens.

Pete literally went Through the Fire. His ministry is sharing with people in the United States and other countries how God brought him through that fire.

The son of Andrew Frank Dechat and Monika Lore Dechat, Pete was born in 1971 at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. He graduated from Osborne Park High School in Manassas, Virginia. Pete lives with his wife Judy and daughter Rebekah on Virginia land that includes goats, chickens, gardens and fruit trees.

The True Story of a 21st Century Job

This book of Job is a very good depiction of what I’ve walked through. I lost all of the material possessions … my wife left me … I was literally blind … I was told I would never walk again … the physical injuries I sustained, unimaginable … it truly changed the trajectory of my life forever.

I was in a Coma for Five Months

I didn’t save myself. If you ask the Doctors today, they can’t explain how I survived. There is one answer left, and that’s God Saved me.

My Goal right now

… is to do exactly what God wants me to do. To go out and share this story. My job, I feel, is to go out there and share the greatness of the one who saved me. The one who this story is truly about.
“God is good – even when circumstances are not.”
