After spending two years in the Air Force where he was the dentist for the Presidential flight crew of Air Force One, he established a private dental practice at NASA in Houston.

Jobe and his wife, Jenna Dee, moved to Dallas in 1971 when he assumed a teaching post at Baylor University’s College of Dentistry. In 1982, he made the decision to enroll in the Th.M. program at Dallas Theological Seminary after which time Jobe and Jenna Dee founded their creation discipleship ministry, Biblical Discipleship Ministries.

Dr. Martin graduated in 1986 with a Masters of Theology in Systematic Theology, and has also obtained an Associates Degree in Business from Eastfield Community College in Dallas, with his most recent degree a D.Min. from The Institute for Creation Research’s School of Biblical Apologetics. He is the featured speaker on the three part DVD series, Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution; the four part Creation Proclaims DVD series, and the newest series from BDM: God’s Living Treasures: Amazing Animals of Alaska. He has written the book The Evolution of a Creationist which also has an accompanying five-part DVD study course by the same name. Jobe’s wife Jenna Dee is a retired R.N and ministers to ladies’ groups and does counseling with women. The Martins have two daughters, Taryn and Mirren, who were home-schooled for 12 years. Both are graduates of Pensacola Christian College with degrees in Elementary Education. Taryn and Mirren have also received Ph.D.’s in history, work with their parents in the ministry, and conduct seminars for young ladies. When they are not traveling in ministry, the Martin family resides in Rockwall, Texas.
