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.
