Meet Bob

Bob first got started in apologetic ministry when he taught Bible History and Science for 14 years in Christians schools, as well as on the mission field in West Africa. His goal was to teach his students that they could trust the whole Bible, and teach them to answer the skeptical questions that seem to make so many people stumble.

Upon leaving Africa, Bob felt God’s calling to go into full time apologetic ministry. The Lord opened the door for him to become an associate speaker for Answers in Genesis for 8 years. Bob’s greatest joy in speaking is seeing faces light up in the audience as they discover they don’t have to be intimidated by secular scientists or teachings that seem to make the Bible seem irrelevant. His passion is that everyone he speaks with sees they can trust the Word of God as an absolute, unwavering authority.

Bob enjoys traveling and speaking with his wife, Lois. He holds a degree from Cedarville University and Master’s degree from Clark’s Summit Seminary in PA. You can read more about their 35 years of ministry together at

"I’d like to thank y’all again for coming to Brownsville. I feel like God sent you here for me. Mr Bob’s preaching has opened my eyes to so much. Questions I’ve had all my life you answered so well. My confusion over some things in Genesis have bugged me for years. I’m so much more confident in my faith now. I’m going to read your books and become a better witness. I’m so excited about my new knowledge. Thanks for making me a better Christian."
