A former missionary with Youth With A Mission, Dr. Petter has retained a strong relationship with the School of Biblical Studies at the main campus in Kona, Hawaii (where she and her husband directed the SBS in the early 1990’s) and the Lakeside, Montana campus. She speaks at conferences, retreats, and churches in a wide range of settings including plenary speaker at ECO National Gathering, Hoffmantown Baptist Church in Albuquerque, First Presbyterian Church, Houston, and Trinitarian Congregational Church, Wayland MA, where her husband Tom serves as Senior Pastor.
Underlying her 35 years in Gospel ministry lies a passion for God and His Word. Whether it was doing relief work at the garbage dump in Manila during her early twenties, providing biblical resources in China, or co-leading the SBS in Togo, West Africa (and surviving a life-threatening bout with malaria), Dr. Petter’s enthusiasm for Jesus and mentoring her students is contagious. She is married to Tom Petter. Their son Marcus studies economics at Gordon College. They live in Sudbury, MA.
