Pastor Bob Gordon

My roots are in a little place named Copiague, New York, where I was raised in a family of three, the son of a truck driver and a nurse.  I worked my way through a small college in Ohio, spending a lot of hard-earned money earning a B.A. degree in political science and English literature.  My master plan was to join the USAF for four years and then go to Washington, D.C. and work for the CIA.   However, while implementing “my plan,” God showed me HIS plan.  During my first assignment, I had a life changing experience and decided to go in a completely new direction. For the next 25 years, I stayed in the USAF using my role as God provided opportunity to rebuild organizations and teach and transform young officers into leaders.

I met my wife, Misty, in San Antonio, Texas where we were introduced by some Godly friends.  After a long-distance whirlwind courtship, I brought my bride back to Key West the following year.  Since that time, we have moved across half the United States twice finally settling in Northern Virginia where we closed out the Air Force chapter of our career.  During that time, we squeezed in two Master’s and a bunch of marathon miles always finding ample time for involvement in all sorts of Christian leadership activities.

Misty and I were blessed with two children.   Melody, our oldest, is a senior, an outstanding student and an avid coxswain on both her high school rowing team and a master’s club team.   Stephen, our youngest, is all boy, a smart kid and loves doing guy stuff.

Misty and I came to Bealeton in 2006 and are thrilled to be part of this exciting adventure in Southern Fauquier County!
