About Jim

“With a worshipper’s heart, and often ministering from behind a keyboard rather than a pulpit, Jim is a writer & songwriter who also uses his singing and speaking opportunities to inspire and bring the message of Jesus. He has released a number of albums, and his books are read, and his music broadcast, around the world.

Jim has a desire to see people in relationship with Jesus Christ & fruitfully involved in the local church.  Contemporary Inspirational music emphasising worship is his field, and he is contracted to ATA Records.

His songs have won several Australian Gospel Music Awards & been recognised internationally. One song was 10 months in the NCM Euro charts & reached #3.

Unexpectedly, given his music background, Jim also has several degrees in Theology, including a Diploma of Ministry, a Batchelor of Theology… and, since then, has completed 5 years of study accredited with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem majoring in Hebrew and a year of Greek.

However, Jim’s desire is that his life be a living testimony of God working in him and through him. From this philosophy flows hundreds of songs and messages based upon Scripture and biblical principles.”

I have know Pastor Jim Peters for five years. He has an inspiring passion to bless people, a desire to encourage hearts, restore the broken especially through worship & personal ministry. He has a strong affinity with Australian rural communities and their unique context. He and his wife Julie have been a valued part of Horizon Church for many years.

We have had the privilege of having Jim Peters minister at our church on several occasions. Each time lives have been touched by the power of God as Jim led the congregation into worship with his own songs and unique vocal style. His genuine love for people and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit is sensed by all as he shares the Word in a simple but effective way.  I personally struggled with health issues for a time and Jim would often phone at just the right time with an encouraging word. I appreciate and recommend the ministry of Jim Peters.

I have been blessed by Jim Peter’s ministry for the past 20 years and have seen him develop and grow into a powerful messenger of Christ. His music ability is highlighted by his numerous CD releases some of which I have been privileged to air on 2CH in Sydney. His international travels have embraced several continents with the Word of God and when back home in Australia he is welcomed across denominational lines to share Christ’s love through his music and inspirational messages. He has ministered at my fellowship – Heartbeat Church, Coffs Harbour on a number of occasions and is always welcome back when his busy schedule allows.

Jim is a great friend and fellow worshiper. A committed family man, he is passionate about seeing the Heavenly Father be praised and honoured on the Earth.  I have enjoyed for many years his consistent musical expression of this passion to see Gods love impact others and also admired his humility and communication skills when teaching and sharing about his journey as a disciple of Christ.

Jim Peters… has been such an incredible blessing to pastors and ministries. His front is this amazing voice that God’s given him…. but what happens is, as he gets alongside pastors, and he’s able to encourage them as a man of God and a man of faith.

Jim Peters is one of the most genuine and sensitive singers/ministers I have ever met. Several times he has been at Wellspring Church (where Dr Knar was formerly the Senior Pastor) and every time his music and teaching gently touches the hearts of everyone in attendance. He has the ability to touch the hearts of many as he prays. He is definitely a minister of the word of God to have visit at your church.
