Pastor Bob Stradling

Pastor Bob believes in the need for a deep spiritual life based on a loving relationship with God in Jesus Christ.  He has a heart for worship as he leads the contemporary singing at the beginning of the service.  His preaching mixes stories, metaphors and Biblical content in ways people can relate to them.  His love for the Lord leads him in his ministry.

Pastor Bob is an evangelical with a heart for the ministry of the Holy Spirit. He plays guitar and leads the praise band. He cares deeply for everyone in our congregation.

Bob was born in Wilmington, Delaware, and graduated from the University of Delaware in Electrical Engineering and from Palmer Seminary with a Master of Divinity.  He has served several churches in Pennsylvania, including the First Baptist Church of Punxsutawney, where he lived across the street from Phil.  For recreation, he plays golf in the summer and enjoys oil painting and reading all year round.

His wife Sharon and Bob have a good marriage of over 30 years.
