This includes eating real food and daily movement, an active lifestyle, a purpose-driven life, and a life focused on God’s individual plan for each of person.

From there he was offered the leadership of the family chemical lubricant business S.H. Mack & Co, which he ran as president for 20 years until the company was sold in 1982. Bob’s responsibilities included running the company administratively, participating directly in worldwide marking, and creatively spearheading product formulation in the laboratory. The company was responsible for development and implementation of the world’s first successful water-based synthetic lubricant which made it more economically feasible to produce two-piece aluminum and steel cans.
Following this, Bob served as a missionary among the poor in Mexico and soon after took a position on the staff of the Youth with A Mission (YWAM), which is the world’s largest volunteer Christian Mission. His mandate there involved assisting in the development of the Department of Science and Technology for the mission’s University of the Nations located in Kona, Hawaii, and developing business initiatives that would complement the goals and needs of both Youth with A Mission, Servant Group International, World Impact Technologies, and other organizations with a similar mission and goals.
From 1990 to present, Bob works as consultant for Sunbelt Lubricants in Tampa Florida and with various other companies in the can making and metalworking industry. Much of his time and interest is also now spent as the chairman of the school board of Covenant Christian School in Aurora, IL. Bob agrees with George Barna that the most important ministry of the Church is the 4–14-year-old age group.
Education: Bob received a BS Chemistry from Northern Illinois University in 1960. Bob’s core strengths are: He is a disciplined self-starter with a proven track record, he has the ability to ascertain real situational needs, and team building.
Interests: As a firm believer in Jesus Christ, he wants to follow Him faithfully, to know Him more intimately, be more like Him, and to make Him known to others. And in conjunction with Him, his wife and family are the greatest source of joy in his life.
