Pastor Bob is a gracious man that loves providing whatever is necessary for you to grow closer to Jesus. This can be as simple as involving you lunch after church, to one on one talks about how God is moving in your life and some ways you can make space for His spirit to move within you. He is truly a shepherd that looks after his flock and a great man of God.
