ROB and CAROL RUGLOSKI
The Rugloski family
Primary Ministry Focus:
Rob, Carol, John, James and Hannah
God put a desire to serve cross-culturally in Rob's heart during the first week of his new life in Jesus Christ. After turning from a life of selfish pursuits, Rob found himself in Ensenada, Mexico, working at a Christian camp and serving with a local church in their VBS outreach. From that time on, he knew God wanted him to serve overseas. Carol sensed a call to serve God full-time as a teenager and entered Bible college to prepare for whatever the Lord would have in store for her. She was born in Japan to missionary parents and has always had a love for the Asian people.
Leaving a full tuition scholarship in engineering at Arizona State University, Rob enrolled at Arizona College of the Bible, where he had the opportunity to travel with a team to Singapore and Malaysia for several months. While at ACB, he met his lovely wife Carol, and married her a year and a half later. Both Carol and Rob graduated from ACB with a cross-cultural studies degree. Their aim was to plant churches among unreached/least reached peoples. Sensing the need for further training, Rob completed his M. Div degree at the Master's Seminary in California. The Rugloskis returned to the Phoenix area for some time, to clarify some theological positions before pursuing any full-time ministry.
Over the course of the next 18 years, the Lord blessed Rob and Carol with eight children. The Rugloskis have always been involved in ministry in some capacity and have taken several trips to Mexico to assist friends serving there. In 2012, Rob accompanied a friend to Thailand on an exploratory trip with the organization To Every Tribe Ministries, to see how the Lord was working in Thailand, and how this ministry might expand their work. After visiting many people involved in a variety of ministries, Rob came back from that trip with a strong sense that God was leading him also to a work in Thailand.
Out of a continued longing to serve in SE Asia, Rob contacted Entrust. After several months of prayer and dialogue, Rob was invited in 2014 to join the Chiang Mai team to help establish the Thailand training center.
