Dr. Jeffrey Arthurs

Dean of the Hamilton Campus, Robinson Chair of Preaching and Communication


Jeff was raised in western PA in a nominally Christian home and came to saving faith in Christ when he was fourteen years old. His life was turned upside down as he soon became deeply involved in the life of the church, receiving a call to preach at age sixteen. To this day his passion is preaching, and he uses his wide-ranging communication experience as a teacher, pastor, missionary, director, announcer, and consultant to equip others to more effectively proclaim the Word. He is a professor of preaching and communication at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, MA. His books reflect his love of preaching and communication: Preaching with Variety, Devote Yourself to Public Reading of Scripture, and Preaching As Reminding. Jeff is interim pastor at Cross Bridge in Lexington, MA. Dr. Arthurs has been married for thirty-eight years and enjoys playing tennis and disc golf with his wife. They are the parents of one son, Daniel.
