Dr. Jerry Robeson (19381999) and his wife, Dr. Carol Robeson (19392016), were missionaries to Latin America for twenty years. They ministered in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Jamaica, Mexico, and Chile. They specialized in open-air crusades that were held every night in an area of the city where a new church was needed. One crusade church in Costa Rica, for example, had more than ten thousand people in attendance.
The Robesons maintained an active television and radio ministry. They produced and directed more than twelve hundred Christian television programs in Latin America and the United States, and many hundreds of radio broadcasts. They also appeared as guests on television programs all over the United States. They coauthored Strongmans His Name, Whats His Game? and Strongmans His Name…II.
Jerry and Carol graduated from Northwest College in Kirkland, Washington, and Vision International University in San Diego, California, where they each earned a Ph.D. in Theology in 1996. They had two daughters.
Until 1999, the Robesons were both very active in teaching seminars in the United States and Latin America. After Jerry went to the Lord, Carol continued on with their ministry of seminars and retreats.
