About Jeff Gissing

I was born in Dhekelia, Cyprus and raised in the United Kingdom. I moved to suburban Las Vegas in my teens. Since then I have lived in Alabama, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Illinois.

I’m a pastor and writer.  I live in Wheaton with my wife and kids. We worship at the fantastic Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Warrenville.

My work

I work at InterVarsity Press as marketing manager for IVP Academic. 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.), received the Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School, and has completed additional studies ( toward a Th.M.) in church history at Westminster Theological Seminary.

My other likes include: the Oxford comma, reformed theology, bow ties, corduroy, scotch, pipe tobacco, and Listening to the Mortification of Spin podcast.
