About Us

Rob Campbell grew up in Canton, Ohio and surrendered his life to Christ as a teenager.  The Lord directed him to train for full-time pastoral ministry shortly thereafter. After college and seminary at Bob Jones University, he and his wife, Rochelle, moved out west, where he served as the youth pastor at Highlands Baptist Church in Centennial, Colorado for 9 years. The Campbells came to Bethel in 2005 with their four children.

When he’s not writing for the Bethel Life blog, Pastor Campbell enjoys shooting hoops with his kids, drinking coffee, eating at Chick-Fil-A, and trying to get the AC to work in his car.

 

Joel Mosier was raised in a pastor’s home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he developed a burden to enter pastoral ministry. After finishing seminary, he and his wife, Tara, moved to Tuscon, Arizona, where he served as the youth pastor at Bethel Baptist Church for two and a half years. They came to Bethel (Sellersville) in 2005 and experienced a dramatic conversion: they now root for the Eagles. The Mosiers have four children.

Pastor Mosier enjoys football, spending time with family, listening to preaching, and tackling tough home improvement projects.

 

 

Russ Baun is a native of Buffalo, NY (Snow doesn’t intimidate this school administrator!). He developed a heart for Christian Education early on as one of the first graduates of West Seneca Christian School. After receiving some training at Bob Jones University, he and his wife, Krista, spent time teaching in Togo, West Africa, and later at his alma mater in West Seneca. In 2000, he took the leadership of that school, which prepared him to serve as the administrator here at Upper Bucks Christian School, where the Bauns and their four children have been ministering since 2006.

In addition to patrolling the school hallways, Pastor Baun enjoys hunting, sports, reading, and computers.

 

Victor Irving grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, where his dad was a youth pastor. It became clear during his high school years that the Lord was calling him to preach, so he enrolled at Bob Jones University, where he completed Bible college and seminary–and met his better half, Hannah. The Irvings spent seven years ministering at Oakwood Baptist Church in Anderson, SC, where he served as the youth pastor. They arrived in PA in January 2010, where they promptly added their fourth child (all boys!).

Pastor Irving loves hanging out with teenagers. He also enjoys any kind of sports (he recently picked up cycling), drinking coffee with friends, having fun with his family, and trying to stop saying “y’all.”

 

Eric Connors came to Bethel Baptist Church as a child, shortly after his parents became believers in Christ. Early on, God gave him a love for music and a heart for ministry, which led him to pursue degrees in piano and church music. After spending a few years ministering at Calvary Baptist in Huntingdon, PA, Pastor Connors and his wife, Carla, brought their family back to Bethel, where they are serving the Lord with their (you guessed it) four children.

In addition to leading the music ministry at Bethel, Pastor Connors enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and…well, practicing obsessively on the organ at church.

Jake Grogan was born and raised in Quakertown, PA, but has only been to the Q-mart a handful of times. He started attending Bethel with his family when he was a teenager, and was delighted when the Lord led him and his wife, Mandy, back to Bethel after graduating from Bob Jones University in 2007. Jake and Mandy have two kids, which is apparently not normal for a Bethel pastoral staff family.

When he’s not at Bethel, Jake spends a lot of time doing homework for seminary. He also enjoys playing with his kids, singing, and playing the guitar.
