Jeff Peterson grew up in the Church of Christ in Galena Park, Texas. His desire to
preach and be involved in ministry was instilled in him at an early age by his family and church home. He studied at Abilene Christian University in addition to earning graduate degrees at Princeton Theological Seminary
and Yale University. He taught as a professor for many years at Austin Graduate School of Theology as well as Lipscomb University.
Jeff is never far from some dry humor, or from a reference to the pop-culture touchstones of his youth, such as the original
Star Trek series and classic comic book heroes. He is the proud parent
of Ben, Laura, and Brian and is also a proud grandfather.
