About Me

Hi, I’m Jeff Gissing. I was born in Cyprus and raised in the United Kingdom. I moved to suburban Las Vegas in my teens. Since then I’ve lived in Alabama, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. I’m a Presbyterian pastor and writer, a pastor-writer.  I live in Wheaton with my wife and kids.


My prior ministry experience includes serving as a campus minister, area director, and large church associate pastor.

I studied religion and philosophy at Samford University (B.A., thesis on teleological ethics), received the Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School, and completed additional studies (toward a Th.M.) in church history at Westminster Theological Seminary. I’ve also taken additional research at Tyndale House, Cambridge.
