Bob was raised in a Baptist pastor's home where he received the Lord as his Savior when he was eight-years-old. From then on, he knew that God wanted him to do something for Him. Bob graduated from Cedarville University where he met his wife Lois, then finished his Masters of Ministries degree at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA. The Gillespies taught in Christian schools in Ohio for 14 years and then served two terms at MK schools in West Africa. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.
Bob's goal today is to teach the teachers (i.e., parents, Sunday school teachers, youth directors, and pastors) the same things he has taught his students in schools for many years: to uphold the authority of God's Word from verse one, to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and to confront the forces of secular humanism that are taking over our culture.
