Rev. Bob Bremer
                                   This site is the brainchild of  Rev. Bob Bremer.  Bob earned a
                                   Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree from  
                                   Purdue University in 1969, and began a career in automotive
                                   engineering that would span twenty-five years. He held various
                                   positions with major suppliers of automotive components: 1) in
                                   research as Chief Engineer of Advanced Technology, and 2) in
development as Chief Engineer of Vibration Control Products for Schwitzer Engineered
Components of Indianapolis, IN; and 3) in executive management as Vice President of
Engineering and Marketing for Escan Corporation of Escanaba, MI, Director of the
Engineering Group of the Society of Automotive Engineers in Warrendale, PA, and
Managing Director of the Performance Review Institute also in Warrendale, PA. Bob has
authored several papers in the area of vibration isolation and damping, has fourteen US
Patents, and is a registered Professional Engineer in the states of Indiana and
Pennsylvania.

Charles Truehart, in his article “Welcome To The Next Church” , speaks of “the most fully
developed follower of Christ” as “one who becomes a minister himself or herself, forsaking
all other occupations for the ultimate mid-career change and act of faith.”  Bob grew up in a
stern Reformed tradition; yet in the early ‘90’s was drawn to Truehart’s “Next Church”: the
independent and entrepreneurial congregations in America that at that time were adopting
new forms of music, facility, and preaching, to focus on modern evangelism.  As a layman
he helped build such a church and as a pastor he ministered in it.  Later, serving at
Cedar
Ridge Community Church under pastor and noted author Brian McLaren he was
introduced to the “postmodern” church.  

Bob well recognizes the sensitivities of denominational issues from his experiences in
fellowship as a Baptist, Disciple of Christ, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, E-Free, Methodist,
CMA, and an Independent/non-denominational.  This provided a much broader view of
church, and perhaps also an anointing to preach and teach the Good News – to find,
develop, and lead lay volunteers - to strategically plan and develop organization - and to
help manage the ministries, facilities and facilities construction projects of any church with
a vision to be relevant.  

He began the process to enter professional ministry in 1994, eventually earning a Master
of Art in Religion degree in 1997 from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry, and ordination
by
Cedar Ridge Community Church in Lanham, Maryland.  He served as Executive Pastor
at Cedar Ridge as well as Grace Baptist Church in Netcong, NJ; Assistant Pastor at
Orchard Hill Community Church in Wexford, PA; Associate Pastor at Four Mile
Presbyterian Church in Beaver, PA; Assisting Pastor at St. Luke Episcopal church in
Hope, NJ; Professor of Humanities at Butler Community College; and
Diocesan
Consultant for the Episcopal Diocese of Newark.

His ministry is characterized by passion for motivating believers to reach the pre-Christian:

    I believe that all believers have the call to introduce others to the person of Jesus
    Christ.  I believe that all believers have the obligation to share with others what
    Jesus is doing in their lives, and how it is transforming them to look and act more
    like Him in their daily walk.  I also believe that all believers have the obligation to
    be ready and able to share the Gospel itself in a concise and understandable way.  
    I hold to the importance of being able to contextualize the gospel in today’s
    complex society.  If we can’t do that, we’re disconnected from the power of the Holy
    Spirit.

Bob's Thesis, The Significance of Anointing in Determining the Sacred Nature of the
"New Apostolic Church
, set the stage for his love and desire to impact the leadership of
the local church with this power of the Spirit.

    I have noticed that the closer I can get to Jesus Christ really being the Lord of my
    life, the more compassion I have: compassion for the for the poor and needy,
    compassion for the rich and lost, the driven, the lonely successful.  As I have been
    refining the art of true worship of my God, I have also noticed that I have become
    more alive in the Spirit.  

Bob has the gifts of leadership and faith, competency in the areas of management and
administration, and strength in education, volunteer management and governance, and the
development of Biblical community.

Bob has been a Member of the Board of Directors of the Billy Graham Western
Pennsylvania Crusade, President of the Board of directors of HAP Enterprises, Inc., and a
Member of the Engineering Advisory Board of Cedarville College; and has been
recognised in
Who’s Who in Finance and Industry and Who's Who in Association
Management.  
He currently resides with his wife, Cheryl, in Vero Beach, Florida
