Assistant Pastor Bob Richardson

Pastor Bob and Linda Richardson came to Southside Assembly in October, 2010 from Central New York (Syracuse area).  Pastor Bob felt the call to ministry in 1964.  Pastor Bob and Linda, his wife,  attended school together and were married in September, 1969.  They have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.  Their oldest daughter is serving as a missionary in Thailand, their son, his wife and 4 children live in Lancaster, PA and their youngest daughter is a teacher in Rochester, NY.

Pastor Bob is active in many areas in the church, but one of his primary areas of work is Men's Ministry.  Pastor Bob describes his job as "Assisting the Pastor and the Church in equipping the saints, especially the men, for the work of ministry, help men discover, develop and deploy their God given gifts so that they become the blessing God designed them to be to their families, their church and their community."

Pastor Bob's favorite scripture is Philippians 4:6-7.  To Pastor Bob, this scripture means "In every circumstance we can be thankful and trust that God will hear our prayers and supply all that we need at the time we need it.  At all times we can have peace!"
