Dr. Bud Steadman began his ministry as executive director of Baptist World Mission in April 2009. Prior to coming to BWM, he served as the senior pastor of Community Baptist Church in South Bend, Indiana, for 13 years.
Bud was born in Kingsport, Tennessee, in 1953 into a nominal Christian home. At the age of 10 he heard the Gospel and was saved through the Bible school outreach of a local Baptist church. After being called to preach through personal devotions at the age of 15, he attended Bob Jones University, where he received a bachelor of arts degree in Bible in 1975 and a master of ministry degree in 1990. He was honored in 1994 by Ambassador Baptist College of Lattimore, North Carolina, with a doctor of divinity degree.
Dr. Steadman’s commitment to missions has been reflected in his having traveled to various mission fields, as well as serving on a number of ministry and mission boards, including Baptist World Mission, Bob Jones University, Slavic Baptist Mission, the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship, and the Wilds.
He is married to the former Ruth Ann Bauman of Farmington, New Mexico, whom he met during their Bible college training. The Steadmans have been married for 34 years and have three children.
Tim & Faith Brennan are ministering as church planters in Brazil. They are sent by Milford Bible Church in Milford, PA. They work mainly with Bible Education Association Ministries and are committed to evangelizing, teaching, discipling, and writing materials to equip both Brazilian nationals and tribal men and women to do the work of the ministry. They have been part of the HBC missionary family since 1988.
Joshua & Rachel Roberts are missionaries on deputation to Wales through Baptist World Mission. The Lord has blessed both with the privilege of having fathers who were pastors involved in church planting, and they both graduated from Maranatha Baptist Bible College in 2003. They have a burden for church planting, ultimately in multiple areas in North Wales where the powerful Welsh revivals of the past have been abandoned. They are being sent by Faith Baptist Church in Warren, MI.
