Drs. Bobby & Janice Love
Reverend Bobby Love is the senior pastor of the historic Second Baptist Church of Olathe, Kansas, where he has been privileged to serve for the past 31 years. As a licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor for National Christian Counselors Association (N.C.C.A), he recognized the additional need for clergy to be better equipped in counseling and established The Midwest Christian Counseling and Training Center as a resource to assist those who help the hurting within the church and community.
Dr. Janice R. Love is a Wife Reinvention Strategist and leads women married to pastors and influencers to find their own voice, identity and platform. As the CEO of Pearls Perfected, a licensed Christian Counselor, a coach, a teacher and founder of Pearls Perfected Institute, she equips women for more fulfilling lives and happier marriages.
Janice is the author of three best-selling books; One Plus One Equals Ten: A First Lady’s Survival Guide for Stepmoms; Divorced and Still Highly Favored; and Chosen for This: How to Be Married to Ministry and Have Your Own Life Calling. Her life experiences have uniquely positioned her as a safe place and wise counsel for women in areas the church is not equipped to handle such as divorce, blended families, and women living in their husband’s shadow.
Together, the Drs. Love earned the certified credentials of Counselor and Coach respectfully by the Stepfamily Foundation Inc. In response to their own trials and tribulation of blending their family, they established “Step with Love Ministries”. Their primary mission is to equip and support couples and churches to build strong marriages and communities.
They reside in Olathe, KS, and have 8 adult children, 2 grandchildren, and an adorable great grand-daughter.
