Bo Prosser

Interim Pastor/Consultant

Dr. Prosser served the senior leadership team of CBF from August, 2002 until September, 2017. In the following years he has served as a Catalytic Coach and Consultant for CBF.  Prior to his time at CBF, he was a career congregational Christian educator in local churches in Kentucky, Georgia, and North Carolina.   Though his title changed in several reorganizations, his challenge throughout the years has always been to help make the Fellowship more relevant to its constituent congregations.   

He has written the “Prayers of the People” article for fellowship! magazine since 2011.  His focus on spiritual formation has been directly responsible for the deepening of prayer experiences for individuals and congregations across the fellowship and beyond.  He has also written extensively around adult learning, creativity and leadership.  

While recently retired from CBF, he continues a  busy schedule as writer, coach and speaker. He has been an adjunct professor at several of CBF's partner seminaries, author/co-author/contributor to more than 15 books and over 50 professional articles. 

Bo holds an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, an MRE and M.Div. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., and his Doctorate from North Carolina State University in Adult Education. He is a storyteller, improvisational trainer and professional coach. 

He is married to Gail, has two adult daughters, and two sets of grand twins.  In his spare time, he writes music (he has performed at the world famous Bluebird Café in Nashville) and collects Coca-Cola memorabilia and old baseball cards.
