Pastor Robert Pophal

Pastor Rob and Tawni Pophal were married in the summer of 1998 after being brought together by the Lord in their corporate employment. The Lord has allowed them to work and serve the Lord together for over twenty years. Pastor Pophal graduated from the Massillon Baptist College with a Divinity degree and Tawni graduated from a leading Northeast Ohio university with a degree in education. Pastor Rob was ordained to the gospel ministry at the Bethel Baptist Church of Ravenna, Ohio in 1996.

Pastor Rob and Tawni were both blessed to be raised in Christian homes and in two different good, Bible preaching and Bible believing churches where they heard the good news of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and both were saved at a young age. Both were blessed to attend several years of Christian school in their formative years.

Pastor Rob served as the Assistant Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Ravenna, Ohio where he along with Tawni served for ten years as the children’s ministry director, VBS coordinator, Sunday school teachers and in many other ministries of the church. In 2007 the Lord allowed them to step into full time service at the Open Door Baptist Church of Lima, Ohio. There, serving as the Associate and Youth Pastor, he and Tawni both served in the youth ministry, church administration, and in many other church ministries and outreaches.

Pastor Rob accepted the call to become the Pastor of Rose Park Baptist in August of 2017 with Tawni assisting him as a part of the church administrative staff. Their first service was on September 10, 2017.

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mark 16:15-16

We believe that salvation is the gift of God, brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.
