Interim Minister of Education
Bob Mayfield is the Sunday School and Adult Discipleship specialist at the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO). Bob’s mission is to not only equip and resource, but to also network and challenge the 200,000 people who attend Sunday School every week in Oklahoma. He does this primarily through encouraging pastors and educating ministers, Sunday School leaders, and directors to use their Sunday School and small group organizations as their church's primary strategy to fulfill the Great Commission.
Bob grew up in the local church. His parents were Sunday School teachers, his dad was a deacon, and his mom even led the WMU (Women’s Mission Union). In spite of growing up in a godly home, it took a new convert to Christ to show Bob his need for God. Bob admits his life is far from perfect, but God has given him direction and purpose because of his relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
Bob is also on the managing team of the SundaySchoolLeader.com blog and also writes on his own blog, BobMayfield.com.
Bob has been married to his wife, Tracy, since 1986 and is the proud father of two children, Zachary and Mary Kathryn.
