New Book Release

In Unveiled, Jon Petersen takes an honest look at his nearly half century of ministry. He grew up a third-culture kid while his parents served as missionaries in post-WWII Japan, sat with the “freaks” of the Jesus Movement, got caught in the crossfire of the Charismatic renewal, planted a hippie church, was part of the revitalized missions movement of the 1980s, was among the first to return with the Gospel into eastern Europe after the Berlin Wall fell, and was behind the scenes of prayer movements and citywide transformation in the 1990s and 2000s—just to name a few of his adventures. 

The will of the Father for our lives is rarely a straight line. Jon shares his experiences openly and honestly, including the bumps and bruises he experienced along the way. 

Are you hungry to live a life pleasing to God and in the center of His will? 

Unveiled is filled with Jon’s insights about that pursuit and a perspective that is sure to encourage and strengthen you wherever you are in chasing down Father’s dream for your life. Let the lessons of his journey help catapult you into the fulness of that destiny.

Many in the Church feel bewildered and lost today. Being a Christian isn’t looked at the same way it was even half a century ago, and the world continues to change and morph as it never has before. It’s one thing to show up on Sundays, but what does it mean to be the Church in a time and culture that no longer seems to think we are relevant? 

Unravelled is an exploration of three distinct expressions of being the Church as told through three true stories of those seeking to transform culture with God’s Kingdom: a burgeoning megachurch that hit a wall when its founding pastor had to suddenly step down, a group of praying friends who accidentally became a church, and a church planter who took up residence in a depressed neighborhood and got so busy helping people and revitalizing the city that his “church” never got built.
