Brief Bio

Bob Claycamp was born in Oregon into a Christian home, and was raised to believe that God exists and loves each person, and that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God. After straying from the faith and living a sinful lifestyle, he eventually accepted Christ after graduating from high school.

Bob married his high school sweetheart, Jeanne, when he was just 18 years old. From 1970-1978 they lived and served within the Shiloh Youth Revival Centers ministry. After their Shiloh experience, they moved to Arizona where Bob eventually began pastoring a small group of believers (1981) in the north part of Phoenix, which became known as Calvary Chapel - North Phoenix.

Since the church began, fourteen churches and ministries have been planted, and many worship leaders raised up and sent out. Truly this has been entirely by the grace of God and the obedience of the many brethren that have been members of our church.

Bob and Jeanne have three sons, Micah, Jesse, and Christopher. At this stage of their lives and ministry, they are now ready to open up unto new borders to reach out and encourage their fellow laborers in Christ.

A Word from Bob

One of my greatest joys is to come alongside a fellow pastor and encourage him by offering a listening ear, prayer, and practical experience from my own ministry journey.

      "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." (Galatians 6:3, NKJV)

My wife, Jeanne, and I have been involved in may different aspects of ministry since 1970, the first year we were married. We spent over eight years dealing with young and wayward folks in street ministry and in Christian house ministry. As a worship leader, song writer, Internet Technician, Bible teacher, and Christian life discipler, I've watched the Lord use this vessel purely by His grace and mercy over the years.

Now after almost 30 years of pastoring in the same church I had the privilege of planting, my wife and I have a great desire to help out co-laborers in Christ in whatever way that is needed. It might be me filling in as a guest teacher in a couple of services so the pastor and his wife can get away for a week or two. It might be that we could come alongside of the pastor and his wife in a difficult situation in their ministry and life. It might be for me to speak at a men's retreat, a marriage retreat, or to train in Inductive Bible Study Methods.

My wife also looks forward to just being an encourager to those pastor's wives out there that feel like they are all alone and lost in the midst of it all. She is also available to teach at any Women's event your church may have.
