After nearly 50 years of church ministry in Southern Baptist life, Pastor Bob Cassels has now changed where he ministers but not how! As Pastor Bob and his wife, Pat, travel up and down the west coast to see family they minister at every turn. During the winter and spring we are blessed to have him preach from time to time, passing on all those years of experience in walking with Christ.
