One Breath From Death – The Story & Publishing

Bob Brubaker, Director

“One Breath From Death – Look What God Can Do” is the encapsulation of Bob Brubaker’s story when in 2005 God spared his life. This website is also a compilation of Bob’s story, his PowerBreaks (weekly blog), books that Bob has written, and news of interest.

Bob is a pastor, having been in ministry since 1983, a 19X Ironman Triathlon finisher and was even sponsored by SPAM® 1999-2001 earning him the nickname of “Spamman” and he is even in the Spam Hall of Fame in Austin, MN. Bob missed the Ironman competition in 2005 because he was dying from pneumonia and was in the midst of spending six weeks in the hospital in Denver, CO where he was sent to find the root cause of the illness. His health continued to fail even to the point of a collapsed lung, which led to a near death experience. The account of his “One Breath from Death but Look What God Can Do” experience can be found on this site. His story has been an encouragement to many who are facing impossible circumstances.

Bob resides in Clearwater, Florida with his bride of 42 years where Bob is the pastor of Christ Community Presbyterian Church.
