Senior Pastor

Bob Petersen

Pastor Bob is the founder and senior pastor of Lamar Family Ministries Center.  He has been in many facets of ministry for over 34 years, including youth ministry, children's ministry, deliverance,  and evangelizing.  In the mid 1980's he was the youth pastor in Carthage, Missouri for about 5 years.  He pastored a home missions church in Nebraska in the early 1990's, and in 1997 the Lord directed him to start a ministry to minister to those who were unchurched and hurting; to those who are hungry for the deep understanding of His Spirit. 

His heart is to draw people to know God in a personal way and not from a distance.  He thrives on equipping people with the knowledge and understanding to enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus so that it is truly evident in their own lives that He lives.  An overcoming lifestyle is his passion so that saints can come to the fullness of their callings.  Many have gifts & talents but seem to never bring them into reality.  He teaches others how to break free from generational bondages and how to recognize the life-long patterns that have kept them from their God-designed destiny.

Bob has been married to his wife, Julie for 33 years.  Together, they co-pastor LFMC, with a vision to restore the Christian family to the origins of what God intended and to model healthy communication in relationships. They have four children; Micah, Caleb, Seth, and Levi, and three daughter-in-laws, Madi, who is married to Micah, Brittany, who is married to Caleb, and Daniela, who is married to Levi.
