Peter Jeffery was born in 1937. In 1955, at the age of 17, he became a Christian — in spite of the fact that the very day he was converted he vowed these words, “I will never become a Christian!” Peter married his high school sweetheart, Lorna, at age 21 and they had their first child at age 23. Nine days later the baby died of Spina bifida. Though Peter had been preaching since he was 18, this incident was used by God to call Peter into His service.
Peter was ordained to the ministry in 1963 at age 25 and served as the Minister at Ebenezer Congregational Church in Cwmbran, Wales. In 1972 he accepted a call to Rugby Evangelical Free Church where he ministered until 1986. In 1986 Peter went to Bethlehem Evangelical Church. There he ministered faithfully until 1994. Since 1994 Peter has had an itinerant ministry of preaching and evangelism allowing him to preach at churches and conferences in Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Spain, and the U.S.A.
Peter Jeffery, now retired, has been preaching for more than 50 years. His life work stands as a testimony that anointed expository preaching is not a thing of the past. Heavily influenced by Charles Spurgeon and Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, he displays the same seriousness about the need of proclaiming the truths of the Bible.
Jeffrey has written over forty books, which have been translated into many languages. Many of his works focus on new Christians, the foundations of faith, evangelism and salvation.
