Pastor Bob and Terri

Bob and Terri Govoni

Senior Pastor

I was born and raised in the Pleasant Grove community. I watched my father, mother, grandfather and grandmother among other family members serve in this church for many years. I have so many great memories of being here.

My wife and I were married at Pleasant Grove Baptist in October 1991, and I was baptized and ordained here. I served as a youth Pastor for 2 ½ yrs and left to attend the Baptist College of Florida where I received a BA degree in Theology and Biblical studies.

My family and I served Beaver Creek Baptist Church in Baker FL for 7 yrs. I have been the Chaplain for the EHS football and softball team for 5 yrs, and am currently the full time Chaplain at the Santa Rosa Jail.

We have 3 wonderful children; a daughter, Branda and two incredible boys, Bobby and Anthony. My testimony is simple, I spent 24 yrs as a professional wrestler and lived my life my way, even though some parts were exciting but only for a season. I was miserable until God called me out of the world and into His service. He is showing me daily what a Godly father, man and a servant should be. John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this; to lay down one’s life for one’s friends”

Juan LaGrandeur

Youth Pastor

Hi I’m Juan LaGrandeur! I have been in the church my whole life, but I didn’t realize exactly where God wanted me until 2010. It is at that point that I rededicated my life to Him and felt the call into Youth Ministry.

Since then, I have helped in many capacities in the church from opening the church, working in the sound booth, visiting people in the hospital, working with kid’s church, helping and leading youth groups, and planning youth and kids events. Also, taking kids and youth to events, just to name a few things that I have done in ministry since 2010. I also volunteer at youth camp as a counselor every summer.

I feel that I have a calling to work with youth, because they often want to listen to what I have to say, since I care about each person that I speak with. My goal is to make sure that every teen knows that God has a plan for them and can use them no matter where they are. This goes along with my life verse which is Jeremiah 29:11.

I believe that there is hope for everyone. So, if I can just show teens that there is not only someone who cares for them, but died for their sins, and if only they would turn from their sins, then they can have a peace that will pass all understanding and a joy that is unspeakable. This is what I try to demonstrate through my daily life so that I can share with one more person.
