Bob and Vickie have been serving the Lord together in the ministry since they were married in 1981. Bob received his ministry and theological training from BIOLA University, Talbot Theological Seminary Grace Theological Seminary (M.Div) & Westminster Seminary in Escondido, (D.Min.) and has pastored 3 churches in California for 36 years. . Over the years, the Lord had given them a desire for discipling believers in the faith, equipping them for the ministry, and encouraging the church to be a part of global missions. Their passion for the nations has led them to not only be “senders” but “goers.” Bob has taken many trips to help train national pastors and church leaders in various countries: Myanmar, India, Romania, Moldova, Uganda and Liberia. Through these trips, the Lord not only opened their eyes to the urgent need around the world for sound biblical teaching in churches but also gave them a passion to see pastors & church leaders equipped to feed & lead their flock. Having served in the pastoral ministry for 36 years, Bob “retired” from pastorate but continues to serve Lord full-time in a ministry of training national pastors and church leaders. He is serving on the staff of Training Leaders International as an International Trainer. Bob and Vickie have been married for over 37 years and have four children – three married. They currently live in Orange, CA and enjoy time with their children and spouses, cycling, mountain biking, reading, garage-sailing, gardening, and loving their church in Laguna Hills.
