Pete Briscoe Biography

Pete Briscoe was born in a small town in North England into the ministry family of Stuart and Jill Briscoe. While his father traveled for months at a time with Torchbearers, an international ministry, his mother was very involved in sharing the gospel with local kids through her street ministry. Pete grew up immersed in his parents' faith and evangelism.  

In 1970, the family moved to America when Stuart accepted the job as senior pastor of Elmbrook Church in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Pete was just seven years old and spent much of his young life in the bustling and growing church. It wasn't until 1982, after a mission trip to the Philippines, that Pete realized God was calling him to ministry.

Pete has been the senior Pastor of Bent Tree Bible Fellowship, a multi-site church based in north Dallas, since 1991 after completing his seminary training at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Bent Tree is an authentic Body of believers who are committed to making sure that no one misses the grace of God. While Pete and his wife, Libby, were leading Bent Tree, God grabbed their hearts for His grace. Finding rest in Christ, they are now passionately committed to sharing the "mystery of Christ" while pointing people to the sufficiency and supremacy of Jesus. Pete and Libby have three great kids, and find great joy in experiencing the Life of Christ each day.
