Bob & Kathleen Gabelman

Our passion, for over 33 years, has been to worship our King by proclaiming His salvation both in our local community and to the ends of the earth. We have been serving Victorious Christian Harvesters (VCH) and its founders David and Donna Blanchard since January of 2004. Victorious Christian Harvesters was established in 1992. We serve as Mission Trip Directors: planning, coordinating, and leading mission trips throughout the nations of Mexico and El Salvador. Bob is also the U.S. Internship and Missionary Training Program Director, overseeing the U.S. Internships and prospective missionaries-in-training who are preparing to be staff missionaries with VCH. In addition, Bob is the World Mission trainer for the Mexican National students at the International Harvesters Institute (IHI) in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.  The vision of the International Harvesters Institute is preparing, training, and sending national students to the harvest fields of Mexico and the nations.

We were married in December of 1981 in Key West, Florida. We were local directors of Street Church, an international street ministry birthed out of the Jesus Movement of the 1970’s and we also served on the pastoral staff of a local church in Key West in the 1980’s. We moved to Longmont, Colorado in 1989 and substantially raised a family of three boys and two girls during our 15 years in Longmont. We were members of Resurrection Fellowship in Loveland for 11 years and served in various ministries including: nursery, junior high youth, cell group leaders, and Sunday altar ministry. During this time we were youth counselors for 22 youth camps and took 4 youth teams on summer mission trips from Resurrection Fellowship to Mexico with VCH. During our time in Colorado Bob also proclaimed the good news of salvation to thousands of people each Friday night on the streets of Longmont, Boulder, Loveland, Fort Collins, and downtown Denver (along east Colfax Avenue and the 16th Street Mal)l. Winning souls for the Kingdom is our second greatest passion behind our love for Jesus.
