In 1970, while working for the Donmoyer Avenue church of Christ, he started the South Bend School of Personal Evangelism in 1970.

Throughout his many years at White’s Ferry Road, Bob would serve as an elder, personal evangelist on the local staff and with We Care Ministries.   As a personal evangelist and teacher, Bob shared Jesus with countless people and taught many how to share the gospel.

Bob’s passion for the lost, took him to the best and worst parts of towns all over the country as he told people about Jesus.
