Robert R. Tebow (Bob)
Bob Tebow is known for his passion. He is especially passionate about his family and the gospel. Bob met his wife Pam when they were both students at the University of Florida. They were married after they graduated and have five children (Christy, Katie, Robby, Peter, and Timmy) and eight wonderful grandchildren. Bob and Pam live in Jacksonville, Florida.
Growing up, Bob participated in a variety of sports and was an Eagle Scout. During his freshman year at Florida, Bob and three friends started Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) at the University of Florida. Bob graduated from Florida with a B.S. Degree in Health and Human Performance in 1971.
Bob then attended Western Seminary, where he graduated with honors with M.Div. and Th.M. degrees in 1974 and 1976 respectively.
After seminary, Bob and Pam moved back to Florida, where Bob became the first Area Representative for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Northeast Florida (1976-1979). Bob served as Associate Pastor for Southside Baptist Church (1979-1982) before becoming the Senior Pastor for Cornerstone Community Church (1982-1985).
After a mission trip with other pastors to the Philippines, Bob and Pam felt called to the Philippines as missionaries. In preparation for their move, Bob formed the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association as a 501(C)3 non-profit. Most of the supportive men who formed his board in 1985 still serve in that capacity. Bob and Pam moved their family of six to the Island of Mindanao, Philippines, in October 1985. In 1987, Bob and Pam had their fifth child Timmy, who was a “miracle baby,” according to the doctor who saved both Pam’s and Timmy’s lives. The Tebows moved back to America in October 1990, and Bob continues to make regular trips to the Philippines and other countries.
