Bob Newland, Founder

Bob grew up in a small town in KY and accepted Jesus as his savior at the early age of 10. He served in Desert Storm in the US Navy as a Nuclear Engineer and followed his service with a BS in Mathematics from UCF. His first experience in the corporate world was a dot com startup in Florida where he designed compression algorithms for data and video, fiber technologies, and anti-network terrorism software.

Bob moved to the Chicago area in 2003 to continue a career as a professional trader he began while still in FL. He created automated trading systems and developed trading strategies for his small firm for several years. He decided in 2007 to enter the corporate world working for companies like GETCO, Jump Trading, and TMG. In early 2019, Bob left the trading industry as he was called to serve God with his talents.

After 2 trips to Haiti and 1 trip to Kenya under his belt, as well as several local Chicagoland based service projects, Bob was led to bring his talents to ministry. Ministry Technologies developed from this and Bob now works with Christ based organizations to bring them quality technology solutions within their budget.
