Vice President, Radio Co-host
In the summer of 1977, at the age of 33, Bob Davis met the living Christ—whom he had learned about in his early childhood—and invited Jesus to take control of his life.
Like many people during their formative Christian years, Bob's zeal to know God in a deeper way led him to personal study of Scripture, and membership in a large, evangelical church.
Much of his first five years in Christ found Bob attending Bible conferences and seminars, listening to Christian radio, and performing volunteer ministry services. Yet, with so much varying doctrinal input, the inevitable result was confusion and frustration.
In recognition of his experience in the fields of broadcasting and audio production, Bob was asked in late 1982 assist in producing the original, quarter-hour edition of People to People. In the process of taping sessions, Bob Davis began to realize God's answer to his heart's desire for clarity in understanding in his new life in Christ.
In 1985, while still operating his own, full time business, Bob was invited to co-host a daily radio program to be broadcast live, via satellite, across North America. On June 3 of that year, the national edition of People to People was born.
In February of 1992, Bob became a part of the full time ministry staff. Soon his duties expanded into Media Placement—identifying potential new radio stations and negotiating contracts—and serving as liaison with the affiliated radio stations.
Appointed ministry vice president in 1998, Bob's other duties include overseeing the radio and electronic media divisions of the ministry, including administration of the on-line store, and writing and voicing promotional announcements. Says Bob, "I thank God I've had the opportunity to serve with the People to People staff for all these years. Since October of 1982, it has been an incredible journey of learning, growth, and opportunity for ministry."
On Monday, October 9, 2006, at 6:55pm, following a valiant battle with cancer, Bob's beloved wife Diane passed into the arms of her beloved Jesus. Diane was a blessing to all she met, including those in her chosen profession, and truly displayed the fruit of the spirit.
Bob has two daughters, Shellye Biser and Rhonda Smiga, and six grandchildren.
