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”
