About Our Servant/Director
Bob and His Wife, Barbara Ross
Bob attended Lone Oak High School near Paducah, Kentucky. In 1959, He graduated from Georgetown College, in the heart of the Bluegrass country. Immediately he and his new bride, Barbara, departed for a teaching ministry in Israel ('59-'60).
Israel changed their lives. They fell in love with The Land and The People. They traveled the length and breadth of the new nation. They climbed Israel's mountains, swam her rivers, and lakes, hiked the Biblical highways, and dug her archaeological sites...while Bob photographed everything he could afford to shoot.
Their first son Randy, a "sabra," was born in Nazareth, Israel. They added a "Cajun," Mike to their family, while in New Orleans Baptist Seminary. Last came twin girls, Terri and Sherri, "native Texans", born in Wichita Falls.This original clan, has now added four wonderful "sons/daughters-in-love" and ten "incredible" grandchildren. One, Naomi, is deaf, and was adopted from Ghana.
"The More One Loves the Land, the More they will Love The Book"
Bob's hobbies are archaeology, Biblical geography, photography, scuba diving, hunting, fishing, gardening, lawn care, and woodwork. Barbara served as an Registered Nurse for 43 years, but today loves raising orchids, reading, handwork, scuba diving, and most of all, grandkiddin'. Their favorite places on planet earth are... First, Israel, followed by Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico's Yucatan, Cuba, and Eastern and Western Europe. Bob's photographic collection covers all these places, and much more.
Now, after a 50 year foundation of ministry in local church...Bob and Barb are building on their vast experiences to minister to a world in need. Thus...Bob C. Ross Ministries.
