To be a success in ministry, Bob believes that it requires a practical understanding of the Word of God in addition to having the ability to lead others. His heart as a pastor is to connect people to the two greatest life-change agents that have impacted his life; the Word of God and the Spirit of God.
Before stepping into fulltime ministry in 2001, Bob served for ten years in the fields of insurance sales and bank management. Throughout the many years of full-time ministry experience in Tennessee and Oklahoma, he has served as an ordained senior pastor, executive pastor, Bible college instructor, and life coach, Bob brings to Lighthouse Church a unique blend of biblical teaching, leadership development and ministry acumen. Bob currently serves as Lead Pastor for Lighthouse and is part of the preaching team.
Lastly, Bob believes that one of the greatest assets that God has given to him in life and ministry is his family. Bob and his wife, Dana, met while in college through a young adult ministry in the small town of Pevely, MO. She is his best friend, the joy of his life, and a gift from God. Married in 1991, they have two amazing daughters, Emma, and Lauren (who is married to their incredible son-in-law, Matthew). Bob and Dana are avid Green Bay Packer fans, like to dabble in real estate, love vacations on the beach and spending time with their kids.
