Bob became acquainted with The Navigators while in the Army in 1970, and was involved with them as a student at Penn State University. He and Liza both moved to Virginia in 1978 to serve with The Navigators and they met through mutual friends. As members of Third Church for 17 years, Bob was an elder and both he and Liza led small groups before transferring to Swift Creek Presbyterian Church. Third Church has supported the Seiberts for nearly forty years.
The Navigators have 5,200 missionaries who serve in 107 countries. They feel called “to advance the gospel of Jesus and his kingdom into the nations, through spiritual generations of disciples living and discipling among those who don’t yet know Christ.” They are passionate about helping people know Christ and then make him known. They help people go deeply into the scriptures and apply them to everyday life.
Bob’s primary ministry is to train and coach missionaries as they build their prayer and nancial support teams. Raising nancial support is often one of the most challenging responsibilities for missionaries.
Since 2011, Liza has led a ministry to women new to the Richmond area. The 12-week class is called “Moving On After Moving In.” It is designed to help new resident women make friends and process with others the emotions and challenges of moving, while nding Christ in the midst of it all.
