Parson Bob Stark

Parson Bob Stark is a Synodical Authorized Minister and a recent graduate of Wartburg Theological Seminary's TEEM Program. He is entering his fourth year of shepherding First Evangelical Lutheran Church and believes that equipping people for mission is an essential part of building up the Body of Christ. He enjoys crafting creative children’s messages that engage both young and old alike. The kernel of these messages are grown through the week as he shares the weekly scriptures at every opportunity when two or more are gathered, followed with, “What’s the Holy Spirit saying to you as you hear the Word of God?” As the priesthood of all believers, we are called to minister to each other and proclaim the Good News of Christ when prompted by the Holy Spirit. Building life-giving relationships shows Christ in action and brings him ever present in peoples lives.
