Rob and Karen have been members of Wycliffe Bible Translators since 1987. In 1990, they began their ministry as a translation team in Asia. In 2006, after nine years of ministry with the Mississippi Choctaw Indians, they turned the Choctaw Bible translation project over to a Choctaw Bible translation committee and moved to Alberta, to begin training and assisting Christians of the Stoney First Nation to translate the Bible into the Stoney language.
From 2007 to 2013, the Taylors trained and assisted the Stoney Bible translation team in translating and recording the books of Luke, Acts, Genesis, James and Revelation, and dubbing Luke, Acts and Genesis onto the corresponding Scripture DVDs.
In 2013, Rob joined The Seed Company (a Wycliffe-affiliated organization in the U.S.) as a translation consultant for the Asia Pacific region. Three years later, he transitioned to the Oral Bible Translation team to train and assist teams to begin new oral Bible translation projects.
Karen currently serves with Wycliffe, primarily as part of a team that’s preparing translator’s notes for Spanish-speaking translators.
The Lord has blessed Rob and Karen with six children, ranging from the ages of 15 to 28, and one grandchild. Their children are spread across North America, from Fort Worth, Texas to Calgary. Rob and Karen currently reside in Monarch, Alta.
