Dr. Bob Bakke is the teaching pastor of Hillside Church, Bloomington, MN. He and his wife Sally have a daughter and three sons, a son-in-law, a daughter-n-law, four grandchildren and a black lab. A graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Bob spent fourteen years serving Connecticut and New Jersey churches. For another twelve years he served as an Executive Director of the Evangelical Free Church of America, promoting prayer and spiritual awakening. He is a student of history, an author, and a producer of national television and radio simulcasts.
For ten consecutive years, Bob produced The Nationally Broadcast Concert of Prayer; a radio, television and Internet simulcast on the evening of the National Day of Prayer.
Because his life verse is Habakkuk 2:14, in 2004 he helped found the Global Day of Prayer, producing television and radio broadcasts that covered the earth. Bob's work has afforded millions of Christians the opportunity to pray together. It was celebrated in 220 nations and territories at tens of thousands of locations.
In 2012, Bob joined a small group of leaders and helped launch OneCry, a fledgling movement of Christians who are mobilizing and uniting for the purpose of seeing revival come to the American Church. In the first two years, Bob’s radio specials called The OneCry Prayer Summits, have grown to nearly 525 stations. To remind Americans and encourage believers, he is presently researching and writing for a major film on America’s Second Great Awakening (1800), the most important revival in the nation’s history.
As one who honors the local pastorate as the highest calling, Bob returned to the pastorate in 2007 but uses his gifts as a preacher, teacher, networker and tactician for promoting, forging and cultivating prayer-based movements, domestically and internationally.
