Rev. Bob Johnson

Music Minister

Bob has a passion to see people transformed by the presence and power of God as they encounter Jesus in worship. He is equally at home playing the great hymns of the church on the organ and the latest praise and worship songs on the piano. Bob has studied both music (Lebanon Valley College, Westminster Choir College) and theology (Institute for Worship Studies). He has taught music and worship at Southeastern University and The Worship Arts Conservatory. As a faculty member with the International Worship Symposium he had the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and abroad to lead and teach worship. Bob is married to Catherine and together they have a daughter, Kiersten.
