Bob and his family sold their suburban home and moved into the inner-city where they have lived and served as neighbors among those in need. His life’s work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults.

Through FCS Urban Ministries – a non-profit organization which he founded – he has developed two mixed-income subdivisions, organized a multi-racial congregations, started a number of businesses, created housing for hundreds of families, and initiated a wide range of human services in his community. He is the author of five books (Theirs is the KingdomReturn FlightRenewing the City and CompassionJustice and the Christian Life plus his newest book Toxic Charity) and the widely circulated Urban Perspectives – Reflections on the Gospel, Grace and the City.
