Rev. Bob Voels



Pastor Bob has been married to his best friend Donna for over 30 years, and together are the proud parents of two daughters and two sons. His journey of faith brought him into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ in his early 40's, and he answered the call to pastoral ministry in November 2005, when he was appointed as pastor to a United Methodist church in Cedar Rapids, IA. 


After ten great years in Cedar Rapids, Pastor Bob was greatly blessed as God brought him and his family to the Cedar - Fremont United Methodist Parish! He has a passionate love for the Lord, believes that the Church's mission is to spread the the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to live out this mission by loving God and loving neighbor! 


Pastor Bob's Biblical preaching reflects his belief that "all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16, 17 NIV).
