Bob Gass

Bob Gass was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland on January 15, 1944. At 12, he committed his life to Christ. Five years later, he moved to America and was ordained into the ministry.

'I started preaching when I was 13. I went to America when I was 18 with two sermons in my brief case, 25 cents in my pocket, one suit on my back and no formal theological training.'

After years spent speaking in churches of all denominations throughout North America, he moved to the northeast where he built and pastored a large church.

'At my wedding ceremony, the pastor told me ‘you will reach more people through your writing than you have or will do in all the years of your preaching. My wife Debby wrote it down and dated it.'

Three years later, in 1994, Bob wrote the first edition of The Word For You Today, a daily devotional.

'I wrote the first edition of the Word For Today for United Christian Broadcasters who were launching a vision to pioneer Christian radio in the UK. The first edition was 3,500 copies. We didn’t even know if we’d have the money to print the next edition. Today, there are millions of copies all over the world
