Matt Petersen | Wycliffe Bible Translators

Matt Petersen

Strategic Prayer and Partnerships Officer

Matt Petersen came to Wycliffe USA in 2002, just months after the new headquarters building was opened in Orlando. In the years that followed, he served as a writer, editor, Director of Content and as the Senior Director of the Marketing department.

Matt grew up in a family heavily invested in missions, but he didn’t realize there was a place for his skills in Bible translation. Upon graduating from Wheaton College in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in communications, Matt began his career at a news radio station in his hometown of Fresno, California. In the following year, Matt learned about the opportunity to serve at Wycliffe while on a short-term missions trip to Cameroon.

Matt is a passionate reader and life-long learner. He and his wife, Melissa, have two young boys. In his free time Matt enjoys woodworking, camping and longboarding.
