Biblical Ministries Worldwide
Philip was born and reared in a pastor’s home in
Minneapolis and born again in 1975. He received much of his training at
Fourth Baptist School, Pillsbury College (where he met his wife Cindy in
1981)and Central Seminary. For seven years Philip taught in a Christian
school. In the fall of 1991 God began directing Philip and Cindy toward
missions. She is the daughter of Wings As Eagles Missions Air Service
founder, Bob Warinner.
In 1996 Philip and Cindy with their three oldest children arrived in
Jonkoping, Sweden, to assist in a church-planting ministry. Two
additional children were born there. The Petersons were excited to see
God’s work in this spiritually needy country. A church with several
solid families is actively ministering in the city. A Bible institute
was established in 2000 to provide the members with solid Bible training
and three young men are currently preparing for the ministry.
In the fall of 2000, God allowed the Peterson’s ”routine” visa extension
to be denied, closing the door for them to minister full-time in Jonkoping. They are now preparing to be involved in a multi-national,
English-speaking ministry based in Berlin, Germany, beginning January
The Petersons are now working in Scotland.
