Bob and his wife, Nancy, have been attending Creekside since 1991 with a five-year sojourn to Germany as missionaries. He accepted the Lord in the fall of 1977. He began his full-time ministry as high school pastor at Bethany Community Church in Tempe, Arizona, starting there right after seminary in 1982. Bob and Nancy were married in 1979 and have two children. Bob grew up in Southern California, and says his hobbies include Cat whispering, Hula Hoop theology and traveling…. Actually, the last is true. Add, reading, and watching old movies. His favorite verses are: · Phil. 1:6 – Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. · John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
