BagleyBoth Bob and Brenda (Karns) Bagley are former missionary kids and as teens accepted the call to serve Christ in full-time ministry. They served as Global Partners’ missionaries to Southern Africa from 1982 through 2004. While in Africa, Bob served as principal for the Emmanuel Wesleyan Bible College (EWBC) in Swaziland, South African mission director for Global Partners, director of ministerial training for the Southern African region of The Wesleyan Church, and director for Wesleyan African Advanced Leadership Training. Brenda taught at EWBC and the Wesleyan Evangelical Seminary, mentored African women leaders, and established Compassionate Ministries South Africa.

In 2009 the Bagleys again answered the call to minister in Africa, serving as Global Partners’ Africa area director. Their vision is to equip and encourage the African Church to shine the light of the gospel further and more effectively throughout the continent. They desire to nurture Holy Spirit empowered living, encouraging the Church to reach the lost and to effectively disciple believers.

Bob received his M.A. in missiology at Columbia Biblical Seminary and his Ph.D. in educational studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Brenda received her M.A. in missions and intercultural studies at Wheaton College Graduate School.
