Benj Petroelje is a doctoral student in New Testament and Christian origins at the University of Edinburgh. Prior to moving to Edinburgh, he received his MDiv from Regent College. Over the last decade, Petroelje has pastored in several church contexts—most recently in Vancouver, BC—and he is currently pursuing ordination in the Christian Reformed Church.
