About Me

My name is Tony Petersen (M.A. in History, Fresno State), and I am the Pastor of Discipleship at Mountain View Church and an adjunct professor in U.S. History at Fresno State and Fresno City College.

I have been published in the MB HeraldThe Imaginative Conservative, the Cato Institute’s website Libertarianism.org, and in the academic journal The Historian. I have presented at multiple graduate student conferences as well as at the Fresno Historical Society’s Civil War Revisited.

From 2014-2017, my wife and I served in a local church in Peine, Germany.

My interests range from American history, American conservatism, and American religion to  church history, Reformation theology, and the ways the gospel shapes our thinking to basketball, baseball, and football. I am a minority owner of the Green Bay Packers and my wife would say I own too many books.

I am married to my best friend and have two beautiful, lovely daughters.
