Bob and Kathy are both natives of Jacksonville and have lived in the surrounding area their whole lives. They have three sons, two of whom still live in Jacksonville and one who lives in Australia as a missionary. For nine years after graduating from Seminary, Bob and Kathy pastored a church in the west side of Jacksonville that they planted. Then for the next twenty years Bob was in the marketplace as a salesperson and a business owner as Kathy stayed at home to raise their family. The last seven of those twenty years he was the co-owner of a successful roofing company. During the time Bob was in the marketplace he and Kathy were very active as part of the pastoral-leadership team here at the Vineyard. Then in 2009 they began to hear the call back to full time ministry. On October 10, 2010, they became the lead pastors of this church.
