Meet Bob Flint




At the close of a busy day as a youth pastor and seminary student, Bob spent time reading and reflecting on the Bible’s longest chapter.  Since that late evening in 1979, Psalm 119 has been a favorite passage, especially vs. 97 – “Oh, how I love your law!  I meditate on it all day long.”

Like nearly all the other 176 verses of this Psalm, this verse contains a reference to God’s Word.  Like a drumbeat the message reverberates – THE VALUE OF GOD’S WORD.  When we give the Bible its proper value, our lives begin to reflect stability (vs. 98), insight (vs. 99), and maturity (vs. 100). 

Wherever he is and whatever the task may be, Bob’s prayer is that the Word permeates his life and the lives of others.








Bob has been married to Charlene for 32 years.  His wife is a 2nd grade teacher in the Marysville, OH schools.  The Flints have two children, Eric and Charissa.  Eric and his wife, Ashley, have Bob and Charlene’s only grandchild, Emma Grace.  Emma is two years old, and Grandpa believes she’s the prettiest and smartest little girl in the world.  Her daddy is pursuing a Master's of Sport Management at the Ohio State University.  Charissa is married to Johnathan Rankin.  When she completed her college training, Charissa joined the “MVNU Graduate Club” that Dad, Mom, and brother belong to. Like her mother Charissa teaches 2nd grade.

"I am most pleased to recommend Bob Flint and Life Through the Word Ministries to your local church. Bob's preaching is biblical, well-organized, relevant, and interesting. I was in a service recently where Bob had preached, and at the time of invitation many quickly came forward to pray without any pressure tactics. It was obvious he had been effectively used of the Lord. Bob is a team player, a pastor supporter, positive in attitude, gracious in spirit. I like him and believe you will too."

 Geoff Kunselman, Superintendent, Northwestern Ohio District, Church of the Nazarene

"Rev. Bob Flint has a passion for the proclamation of God's Word. He is also especially concerned about spiritual formation in the lives of those called to leadership in the Body of Christ. You will be blessed by the positive impact Bob's ministry makes in local churches. I enthusiastically recommend him to you as an evangelist."

Dr. Paul Whiteford, Senior Pastor, Church of the Nazarene, Marysville, Ohio.

"Rarely does one find in a revival preacher the passion of an evangelist, the heart of a pastor, and the insight of a scholar. Rev. Bob Flint brings these gifts, graces, and more to the table. It is evident in his preaching, but even more in his presence. His love for God and people of all ages shines through every message, and every moment! It is a privelage to consider him my friend and to recommend him to you as an evangelist/revivalist/teacher for any "special meetings" setting."

Rev. Charles A Nutt, President, Sebring Interdenominational Holiness Camp Meeting

"I highly recommend Rev. Bob Flint. In more than one setting we've worked together in revival emphasis. Rev. Flint is a faithful expositor of the Word. You'll feel very comfortable with his pulpit presence. What I appreciate the most about Rev. Flint is his friendship. He comes to the pulpit with a clear message tempered by a compassionate pastor's heart. Give him a call and work out a revival date. You'll be glad you did!"

Rev. Larry Hall, Senior Pastor, Church of the Nazarene, Urbana, OH  

"A powerful time of renewal! People are still talking about the services. The preaching was truly annointed as Bob spoke directly to the hearts and minds of the church, inspiring and challenging us to stand against the flow of this world. We look forward to a return visit."

Roger Blough, Pastor, Church of the Nazarene, Bryan, OH

"Rev. Bob Flint is truly a man of one book - the Bible. His messages are clearly communicated. Timely and timeless truth is proclaimed from God's Word. God effectively uses him to bring the eternal Word to eternity-bound people with relevance and authority."

Dr. Steve Ruby, Lead Pastor, First Church of the Nazarene, Ashland, KY
