About Jeff

Jeff Gissing is a pastor, ministry leader, and writer.

He is committed to the belief that not only is the Bible reliable, but that it must be recovered as the source and authority of the evangelical church’s mission and ministry. As a result, Jeff is committed to rigorous, passionate, expositional preaching that connects the scripture to the lives of church members.

Since 2017 Jeff has served with InterVarsity Press where he leads marketing for the IVP Academic imprint. Prior to that, he served as Associate Pastor at the 2,500-member First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem (PA) during its contentious transition from the Presbyterian Church (USA) to the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. After losing its property the congregation became known as Grace Church Bethlehem. Jeff oversaw the cradle-to-grave discipleship ministry of the congregation, preached regularly, and led worship.IMG_1331

In addition, Jeff has more than ten years of experience as a campus minister serving graduate students at top-tier universities including the University of North Carolina — Chapel Hill, Duke University, and Wake Forest University.

He is married to Anna (an academic editor at IVP) and father to Nathan (10) and Eliza (9).  The Gissing family lives in Wheaton.
