About Scot & Robin
Scot and Robin Ullrich, both from Houston, first met in high school through the ministry of Camp Peniel. Scot went on to Texas A & M to study Agriculture Economics and Robin attended Baylor University and received a nursing degree. They met up again after college at church and were married two years later.
Within a year they were seeking how the Lord could use them in ministry. Scot began taking classes at Houston Bible Institute, now the College of Biblical Studies; from there he applied and was accepted to Dallas Theological Seminary. They arrived in January of 1993 one month after their first daughter, Lauren, was born. Their second daughter, Erin, arrived 18 months later. Scot finished his ThM, and one month later their third daughter, Catherine, was born. They then moved back to Houston for Scot to begin a pastoral internship at their home church.
Scot and Robin were accepted as field missionaries to Bulgaria with SEND International and left for the field in June of 2000 after their son, Austin, was born. Scot’s primary role was to work at the Bulgarian Evangelical Theological Institute or BETI. Within a year he served as the Assistant Dean, while teaching classes in the residential and the extension programs. During this time Scot and Robin helped start a school for missionary children, the Sofia Christian Academy. They were also instrumental in helping start Awanas in the country and worked weekly as leaders for 14 years. During their time in Bulgaria their children attended an international Christian school where Robin taught for 14 years.
Through the Awanas ministry Scot met a Korean pastor who was working with the Turkish Roma. He had started several churches among this unreached people group, and invited Scot to help teach and train these church leaders in their villages. They began going to the villages about once a month to do training for these 26 leaders and their wives. Other doors have opened to help other Roma pastors through a student of Scot’s from the Bible College who is now working at the Bible League.
Scot and Robin returned to Houston in July 2016 for their son to finish high school. At that time they were led to work with Global Training Network. They are excited to be able to continue with the leaders that Scot has been working with in Bulgaria, as well as to develop new relationships in other countries.
