Simplicity on the far side of complexity.


The Gissing Family

Jeff Gissing is a seasoned ministry leader who currently serves as transitional Pastor/Head of Staff for Westminster Presbyterian Church, an established congregation in the western suburbs of Chicago. He is a trusted guide who helps people think deeply, see differently, and understand the world and their place in it.

Jeff earned a B.A. in Philosophy & Religion from Samford University and an M.Div. from Beeson Divinity School.

He has done additional studies at Cambridge University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Cumberland School of Law, and Westminster Theological Seminary, where he started work on a Master of Theology (ThM) in Church History.

When the weather permits, he enjoys cycling and walking the family dog (Luna, a miniature Goldendoodle). He’s an avid reader (theology, history, and leadership) who enjoys playing FIFA, watching Liverpool FC and UNC basketball, going for walks, and cooking out with his wife and kids.

One day the Gissing family hopes to return to the Southern United States having now experienced seven (yes, seven!) winters in the Northeast and Midwest.
