Bob Irvin - Executive Editor
Bob came on board with TOS in early 2012, bringing a deep and varied writing, editing, and teaching background to the SchoolhouseTeachers.com role. He was in campus ministry “two lifetimes ago,” as he puts it. Next came a number of reporting, writing, and editing jobs in journalism before entering Christian publishing as an acquisitions editor. He’s now thrilled to be part of this dedicated, passionate TOS team. Bob and wife Joan have four kids, from a 23-year-old college graduate to a seven-year-old. Of that big gap, he always says, “That’s something no one plans–it just happens.” He still loves to teach and preach the Bible, coach youth sports, run, mountain bike, and he reads everything he can get his hands on. He loves connecting with great writers and authors and working with them to make their work even better.
