About Bob Kilpatrick
Bob Kilpatrick speaks at churches and conferences around the world. His first book, Secrets of the Silence, was released summer, '09, and his first hardback book, The Art of Being You, will be published by Zondervan in December, 2010. Musicians from Phil Keaggy to Sara Groves have benefited from Bob's skills in the studio. Still, most people were introduced to Bob's ministry through his worship songs.
At least two of Bob Kilpatrick's songs are consistently listed in the "Classic" worship song category- "Lord Be Glorified" and "Here Am I (Send Me To The Nations)". Though these songs keep popping up on the "Greatest Hits" lists, there are many other tunes for which Bob is known- "God Is Good," "Won By One," "Sold Out And Radical" and "I Will Not Be Ashamed" among them. His song "Bring Them Home" was sung at Mother Teresa's funeral service in Calcutta, India (Hillary Clinton mentioned to the singer how touched she was by the song!)
Bob has been in full time ministry since he was seventeen. Over the years he has co-labored with a veritable ministry "Who's Who", including Dr. Jack Hayford, Dr. Lloyd John Ogilvie, Corrie ten Boom, Michael W. Smith, Lincoln Brewster, Anne Graham Lotz, Keith Green, Phil Keaggy and Andrae Crouch. He has produced other artists recordings, working with people like Phil Keaggy, Randy Stonehill, Sara Groves and Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary.) He has spoken at many national conferences (Saddleback Worship conference), universities (Wheaton) and Christian music festivals (Spirit West Coast, Creation).
Starting in 1987, Bob's "Time Out with Bob Kilpatrick" devotional program aired three times daily to over 2 million listeners.
For nearly 15 years Bob wrote a popular column for Christian Musician magazine. His writings also have appeared in worshiptogether.com, Youth Specialties, CCM, Relevant magazine & crosswalk.com.
Bob is an ordained minister, and the third inductee into the Assemblies of God Hall of Honor. He is married to Cindy, his high school sweetheart. They have five children and live in Fair Oaks, California.
"My desire is to serve the Church in any way that God allows. This was not a career choice for me, it was, and is, a calling. I am a servant. With God's grace, that's what I'll always be."
