ANTHONY G. BOLLBACK Anthony Bollback was born into a
Christian home that always entertained missionaries. He received
Christ at age 16 after a near-drowning incident at a summer youth
conference. Beginning his missionary career in China, he and his
wife Evelyn, were forced to evacuate when the Communists took over,
and three years later began serving in Japan for five years. The
remainder of his 24 years in Asia was spent in Hong Kong where he
planted and directed 10 chapels and schools with 10,000 students.
He served as Field Chairman of the China-Hong Kong Field of The
Christian and Missionary Alliance for four years. Unexpectedly, God
changed his direction and sent him to Honolulu for a most effective
ministry as pastor of Kapahulu Bible Church. He retired from active
ministry after serving as District Superintendent of the
Mid-America District C&MA for 9 very productive years.
Following retirement in Florida, he began an active writing career
and the publishing of a very popular series of 6 books based on his
experiences in China for children entitled Jack and Jenny
Mystery Series. His most popular adult books based on the
persecution of the church in China are the two-book series entitled
The Persecuted Church in China: Red Runs the River, Vol. 1
and Exiles of Hope, Vol. 2.He continues a very active
ministry of writing and speaking that includes a monthly e-letter
called China Clippings. In addition he serves on the Church Board
and is an Elder in the church.
