My name is Bob Munson, and my wife Celia and I are missionaries with the Virginia Baptist Mission Board, and serve in Baguio City, Philippines. We have been here since 2004. Our missions family blog is http://bobandceliamunson.wordpress.com Organizationally:
1. We helped co-found Bukal Life Care & Counseling Center back in 2009. We are focused on training in areas of pastoral care, crisis care, CPE, and chaplaincy training. Additionally, Celia and I teach Missionary Member Care, and provide counseling in this area with those involved in missions (particularly Filipinos involved in cross-cultural missions). We also periodically are heavily involved in Disaster Response, particularly with regards to training and traumatic stress defusing. Feel Free to Click Here: Bukal Life Care
2. We cofounded CPSP-Philippines, a certification/accreditation board for pastoral counseling, clinical chaplaincy, and CPE. That was in 2012 and we are still moving forward with it. We also cofounded DPDM, a medical mission group here in the Philippines. We were with them from 2005 to 2009.
Beyond that, I teach Cultural Anthropology and Missions at Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary, and Asia Baptist Graduate Theological Seminary. My big interest is Contextual Theology (particularly CT that is Biblically-grounded. However, I like to know a little about everything (and, I guess, a lot about nothing). I got my Doctor of Theology– Practical Ministry in 2012, at Asia Baptist Graduate Theological Seminary. .
I have written a couple of books, with three more presently in process. a short book that is based on that, as well as some other writings… you can check the MY BOOKS page on this blogsite..
We have three children, and presently work with Bukal Life Care,Inc. Celia is Training Coordinator at Bukal Life, and is a CPE Supervisor-in-Training. She is also a trainer in Disaster Response Crisis Counseling, and regularly does pastoral counseling.
