Bob Burney was born and raised in Southern California. He is a 1970 graduate of Bob Jones University and received his ordination in the ministry in 1971.
In 1976, Bob and his wife, Joy, founded Calvary Bible Baptist Church in Westerville, Ohio. Bob pastored Calvary Baptist until December 2000, when he was called to host Bob Burney Live. He was named the Salem Media Talk Show Host of the Year in 2005 and his program was nominated as National Talk Show of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters - designating it as one of the top 10 Religious Talk Shows in America.
Bob has traveled extensively spreading the Good News to such remote locations as Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Tanzania, Romania, Moldova, England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, Ecuador, Nigeria, the Phillipines, Ukraine, Russia and Cambodia as a Minister in Foreign Missions and teaching at Bible Conferences.
Bob has been appointed to the Ohio Governor's Office of Faith Based and Community Initiative Advisory Council. He also serves on the Board of Advisors for Pregnancy Decision Health Center, Citizens For Community Values and Relationships Under Construction.
When he's not on the air, Bob and his wife Joy lead CrossPower Ministries. During Bob's 25 years of counseling individuals and families- he learned the average believer was not being taught nor was comprehending the actual message of the Cross. This burden became intense as Bob and Joy witnessed the discouragement of missionaries, pastors, and church staff. Bob realized that this pain, hurt, and struggles would eventually affect the entire ministry. Bob and Joy see their mission field as those who need to hear and understand that true healing and power comes only from the Cross. They call their ministry "Evangelism to Christians." CrossPower Ministries conducts seminars and workshops nearly every weekend of the year across the Mid West.
Bob is the father of three children and the grandfather of eight.
