I’m glad you’ve dropped by my online home, jeffgissing.com. I hope you’ll make yourself at home and stay a while.

Let me introduce myself:

I’m a writer and pastor, currently serving as Pastor for Discipleship at the First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem, PA. By reading my Statement of Faith, you can discover what I hold to be the essentials to orthodox belief. Additionally, I am convinced that the Essential Tenets of the Fellowship of Presbyterians and the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians are a faithful expression of the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.

I’m a husband to Anna–a professional writer and editor– since 2003. I’m also father to Nathan (7) and Eliza (5). We’ve lived in Pennsylvania for the last year and a half. While here we’ve grown to love Christmas in Bethlehem, and to hate snow.

This is my personal blog. The opinions that I express here do not necessarily represent those of my employer, the denomination in which I am ordained, or any publications for which I write.

I like the Oxford comma, bow ties, corduroy, and the North Carolina Tar Heels.

I think on paper and on screen, which is why I’m a writer. My work has been featured on Juicy Ecumenism (blog of the Institute of Religion and Democracy), worldviewchurch.org (blog of the Chuck Colson Center for Worldview, a ministry of Prison Fellowship), Layman.org (the online version of the Presbyterian Layman), RealClear Religion, Virtue Online, and The Aquila Report among others.

This is my personal blog–an online space in which I try to give expression to an intelligent evangelical faith, explore spirituality in the Reformed tradition, and find ways to live missionally in a fallen world.
