About our pastor…

  • Pastor Bob, 58, is in his 34th year of full-time service as a pastor. He came to Walnut Bottom from a three-point charge with Duboistown, Trinity Williamsport, and Third Street churches.
  • He was recommended as a candidate for the ordained ministry by Aldersgate UMC, Mifflintown, in 1979, received his local pastor’s license in May of 1983, was ordained a deacon in June of 1985 and an elder in June of 1989 – ten years after he first realized that God was calling him into the ordained ministry.
  • Every place Pastor Bob has served, he has been actively engaged in community/cooperative ministries and mission. He believes strongly in maintaining good relationships with the clergy in the areas where he serves. Central to his sense of call to ministry is to be the presence of Christ to people in times of crisis and to lead the worshipping community into the presence of Christ each time people gather together.
  • He and his wife Glenda have been married almost 35 years. She was raised in Somerset and works as a caregiver for Comfort Keepers. Pastor Bob and Glenda met at Shippensburg State College. She is a die-hard Steelers’ fan, and he is a NASCAR fan.
  • Pastor Bob is especially interested in engaging in visitation with the sick, the homebound, and others who simply want to talk about questions of faith.
