Robert Finley
Robert Finley Analyst Robert assists clients with a variety of regulatory, compliance, and risk management issues. Prior to joining Promontory, Robert served as vice president of strategy at One Public Inc., devising social-media and mobile-device campaigns for clients in advertising and other industries. Previously, he served as an intern in development at the International Crisis Group, a global nongovernmental organization devoted to conflict resolution.

For the past 56 years, Bob Finley, chairman of Christian Aid, has served the Lord Jesus Christ as an evangelist, pastor, missionary, and Bible teacher. During those years, he has traveled more than four million miles and preached "face-to-face" to more than 20 million people.Additional millions have heard his messages through radio, television, films, and videos.His published articles have touched thousands of lives and played a major role in changing the methodology and direction of Christian missions throughout the world.His influence and financial support has been used of God to further the cause of Christ among more than 3,000 tongues, tribes, and nations. More Than 55 Years of ServiceIt all began in 1945 when Finley was invited to speak at a super rally of Youth for Christ in Chicago.YFC president Torrey Johnson was looking for a nationally known Christian athlete to highlight at the rally, but they were few and far between at that time. Finley had just graduated from the University of Virginia, where he was student body president, captain of the boxing team, and NCAA inter-collegiate boxing champion in the middleweight division.Boxing was the major indoor collegiate sport in those days, just as basketball is today. The 25,000 people at the stadium rally interrupted Finley several times with applause.Recordings of his speech were broadcast all over the continent, and invitations for Finley to speak at YFC rallies all across America and Canada poured in. Johnson and YFC Vice President Bob Cook promptly enlisted Finley to be a field evangelist with the organization, along with Billy Graham.Bob Finley preached to crowds of 10,000 daily in Seoul in 1950.On weekdays, Finley worked with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship as an evangelist to university students.He had a special interest in foreign students, and tried to win them to Christ on every campus.His consuming passion was foreign missions, and over ten thousand young people stood in his meetings to indicate their decision to go out as missionaries. Missionary ZealIn 1948, Finley found himself in China, preaching the gospel to crowds in excess of 15 thousand, fulfilling the missionary desire the Lord had placed in his heart.His progress was interrupted, however, when the Communists took over China the following year, and Finley was forced to leave. Not one to give up easily, he headed to Korea.Along with Bob Pierce, who later started World Vision, Finley became the principal evangelist in a great evangelical awakening there. Billy Graham worked closely with Bob in early days of Youth for Christ and sponsored him as a missionary to China in 1948.Still, Finley persisted, staying on in Asia as an itinerant evangelist.Soon after his return to the United States, Bob Finley was a commencement speaker at Houghton (N.Y.) College.In 1953, along with Navigators leader Dawson Trotman, Finley started International Students, Inc. to reach foreign students all over the U.S. and Canada. At the same time he started a division of ISI to provide financial assistance for indigenous ministries in poorer countries, especially those led by men of God whom he had known as foreign students in America.In 1972, that division was spun off as Christian Aid Mission, with Finley serving as president. Since then, Bob Finley has presided over the growth of Christian Aid into perhaps the foremost proponent of supporting indigenous Christian ministries worldwide. [cached]

McQuilkin's self-support perspectives were challenged by Bob Finley, chairman of the Christian Aid Mission of Charlottesville, Virginia, in his article "Send Dollars and Sense: Why giving is often better than going" (1999, 73-75).
Finley agreed with McQuilkin that "churches, by their very nature should be self-supporting" and that "the most effective indigenous missions organizations are those independent of foreign control and not affiliated with foreign denominations or missions organizations" (1999, 73). Finley supported this perspective when he wrote that "providing financial support to indigenous ministries is effective if a clear distinction is made between directly supporting individual workers . . . and . . . supporting such workers indirectly through . . . boards that give oversight to the handling of funds." [cached]

After leaving China, Dr. Robert Finley, a YFC speaker and founder of International Students preached to crowds in Taiwan.
It was 1948 and a Youth for Christ missionary and colleague of Billy Graham, Dr. Robert Finley was in China and then Korea, preaching the gospel to crowds in excess of 15,000, fulfilling the missionary desire the Lord had placed in his heart. Bob Finley (rt) and World Vision, Bob Pierce (left)preached together in a mighty spiritual awakening which swept Korea in early 1950. Robert Finley, saw that the native Christian leaders of each country-believers who spoke the language, knew the customs, and lived with the people they were trying to reach-were completely capable of evangelizing the lost and taking the gospel to their corners of the earth. He returned to North America, determined to arouse the churches about the effectiveness of indigeous missions. Citing Acts 2:5-11 and 8:1-4, he said the best way to plant a Christian witness in closed countries was to reach people from foreign lands when they were away from home, then, when they return to serve Christ in their homelands, we must get behind them with intercessory prayer and financial assistance. How the Ministry Began To meet this goal, Dr. Finley started International Students, Inc. (ISI) in 1953 in Washington, DC. At the same time, he began a division of ISI that was charged with providing financial assistance for indigenous ministries in poorer countries. Dawson Trotman,leader of the Navigators,seen here with Bob Finley in 1951,was one of the co-founders of the original mission work. [cached]

In 1969-70 Dr. Bob Finley of International Students Inc. invited Brother Bakht Singh to speak at the Indigenous Missions Institute, which was held in Washington, DC.
The main purpose of the Institute was to give the returning Christian international students and scholars the vision of the New Testament church based on the New Testament principles already practiced by Brother Bakht Singh. During those years he also traveled extensively in various parts of the United States and Canada ministering in churches of different denominations. In 1969 and 1970 during his visit to the United States, he also spent time with us in Syracuse, New York, and encouraged us to start a local church based on Acts 2:42. In 1970 the Lord constrained us to start International Assembly which still continues today. In 1974, following his visit to Lausanne Congress on World Evangelism in Lausanne, Switzerland, Brother Bakht Singh visited various parts of Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. During that visit he advised me to hold a Holy Convocation in Syracuse, New York. According to Robert Finley, President of Christian Aid Mission, "I have never seen a man who has a greater knowledge and understanding of the Bible than Bakht Singh.
