It was in 1972 when Rev. Robert F. Ogle first answered the call of God and attended bible school in New Jersey. It was there he met Cheryl Johnson and they were married in 1975.
Upon completion of their biblical studies Bob and Cheryl chose to follow God's leading to the mission field instead of a pastoral calling. The next 17 years was a whirlwind of having three children of their own, while reaching out to the "least of these" all over the world. Bob became the Caribbean/Central American director for Youth With A Mission while Cheryl taught school to her children and others.
The Ogles left the mission field in 1989 and came to Lafayette in 1990. Bob took his first pastoral positon and was ordianed in 1996. After 13 years at that church, Bob took a sabbatical and ministered on campus at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. In 2007 Bob accepted the call to become the Pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church or as it is now called Church of the Trinity.
Bob has a passion for teaching. He is a gifted communicator, who speaks the truth plainly. Bob still has a huge heart for missions and often brings young people on mission trips around the world. God has given Bob a vision and a passion for helping people meet Jesus, and each week he shares God's word and its practical application in our daily lives.
