Church Planting in New York State

About the Planter

About Bob Teachout:
Igrew up in a Christian Home, for several years, I assumed I was a Christian, but one Sunday night our pastor preached a message about be sure - I was not able to think of a time, I had repented of my sins. After thinking about it all night, the next morning in May '63, I talked to my dad - and I then accepted Christ as my Savour.  For the next several years, I became very active in our Awana Program, VBS, Summer Camp and other Christian activities.  After High School, I enlisted in the US Army.
I had orders for Vietnam, but the Lord saw fit to send me to Zweibruecken, Germany.  It was there, I started attending a Southern Baptist Church. I soon joined and the pastor asked me to start a youth group.  During this time, Pastor Ralph G. Blair also had me preach for the first time.  I then knew the Lord had called me to be a pastor.  However, my call to ministry would be serving while in the military- I had well over a decade of Army life- while serving in many churches.  I served in virtually every position (except in the nursery!)  While I was in, I had the opportunity to start Fellowship Baptist of Wildflecken.  Through this ministry; we saw many decisions for Christ.  After my discharge, I went into Christian radio, again serving in most positions at different stations.
Through the radio ministry, I had the opportunity to speak at many churches.  Currently, I am semi-retired as a bi-vocational church planter.
