Pastor Bob

Senior Pastor - Bob Dennis

Bob, with his wife Anne, were called to the role of Senior Pastor of MBC in July 2012. At 28, while in the Air Force, Bob’s  life was suddenly changed when he discovered the grace of God.  Prior to coming to Merrylands, they were involved in pastoral ministry in rural NSW and the Blue Mountains.   They have four adult children and are now on a steep learning curve as grandparents.

Bob enjoys serving in a kingdom community where…

- people of all backgrounds are welcomed, accepted and, loved,

- people discover  Jesus, grow in their faith, and are equipped and empowered by the holy spirit to serve God,

- people who are hurt and wounded by life find healing, recovery, and wholeness,

- marriages are strengthened and families are encouraged to be healthy and loving,

- children and youth are affirmed and encouraged towards realising their full potential,

- people are motivated to serve the local community and the world for good.
