Dr. Jason Peters serves as Associate Vice President of Connection for The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM). As a global voice for our persecuted family members, Dr. Peters travels frequently to meet face-to-face with persecuted believers around the world and equips VOM to tell their stories. He leads VOM’s outreach initiatives, including media development, special events, public relations, and oversees hundreds of speakers and representatives.
Peters was executive editor of I Am N: Inspiring Stories of Christians Facing Islamic Extremism and host/producer of the I Am N video curriculum (David C Cook, March 2016). He has ministered in 40 countries, as diverse as Sudan, Cuba, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Bangladesh and Nigeria.
VOM ministers internationally by serving, and serving with, Christians who are severely persecuted for their faith. An evangelical missions organization, VOM accomplishes more than 1,600 projects annually in 68 hostile and restricted nations by responding to persecution and advancing God’s eternal Kingdom on the world’s most difficult missions frontiers.
As a member of the executive leadership team, Dr. Peters is responsible for developing and disseminating VOM’s core messaging across many platforms. This includes VOM Radio, awarded “Radio Program of the Year” by National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), the VOM Advance Conferences, social media initiatives, legislative affairs and more than 300 volunteer speakers. These ministry tools and channels serve as a voice for persecuted Christians, bring American Christians into fellowship with their persecuted brothers and sisters, and allow believers in the U.S. to be inspired by the example of their joyful, bold and suffering family members.
Prior to joining the VOM leadership team, Peters ministered as a military chaplain, with assignments at the Pentagon, the U.S. Air Force Academy and as a faculty member of the Air Force Chaplain Corps College, where he directed Crisis and Trauma training. Jason and his wife Kimberly lived overseas for several years, where two of their five children were born. In 2007, Peters earned the Doctor of Ministry degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, utilizing research conducted while ministering in Iraq.
