My name is Bob Munson, and my wife Celia and I serve in Baguio City, Philippines. We have been here since 2004. What do I do?
1. Teach. I am on the faculty and teach various missions topics and occasional pastoral care topics at Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary (PBTS) and Asia Baptist Graduate Theological Seminary (ABGTS) in Baguio City, Philippines. I also presently serve as the Dean of Students at PBTS.
2. Write. I blog here and elsewhere. I have finished four books… one on medical mission work in the Philippines, one on story and culture, one on cultural anthropology, and one (strangely) on pastoral care. You can check the MY BOOKS page on this blogsite..
3. Organizational Work. Celia and I 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. Celia is a Diplomate in CPE/CPT Supervision with CPSP/CPSP-Philippines. We cofounded CPSP-Philippines, a certification/accreditation board for pastoral counseling, clinical chaplaincy, and CPE, that works in partnership with CPSP (in the US). 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.
4. Counseling. Celia is a counselor… but I do assist at times, and especially do work with counseling as part of missionary member care, and pastoral recovery.
We have three children, all three of whom are in college. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
