Dr. Jason Peters serves as Chief 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 Christians around the world and equips VOM to tell their stories. He leads VOM’s outreach initiatives, including global partnerships, constituent relations, special events, and oversees hundreds of speakers and representatives.
Peters was executive editor of the national bestselling book I Am N: Inspiring Stories of Christians Facing Islamic Extremism and host/producer of the I Am N video curriculum (David C Cook, 2016). He has ministered in 47 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 the VOM Advance Conferences, strategic partnerships, social media initiatives, legislative affairs and member care. 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, eventually retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel after 20 years of Air Force ministry. Jason and his wife Kimberly also 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.
