Bob Anderson

Campus Pastor | Northside

My Motivation

My motivation is to see life change. I want to connect people to the God who has the answers for all of life and godliness. I continue to find joy in serving the Lord in full time ministry.

My Background

I am also the CEO and founder of Slingshots – a non-profit organization reaching teens in Chicago with education, vocational training (carpentry/culinary arts), emotional support, mentoring (basketball) and spiritual guidance. Before coming to The Bridge, I was a youth pastor for over 20 years. I joined the staff at The Bridge in June 2019, where I am the campus pastor for our Northside campus. My wife Heather and I have two daughters, Tori and Hailey.

My Spiritual Journey

I was saved as an elementary student. My teacher shared the gospel with me and helped me clearly understand my need for a relationship with God the Father. My youth pastor taught me how to study the Bible and the importance of quiet time with God. He challenged me to consider what God wanted in my life and this helped guide me as I began fulltime ministry work as a youth pastor for over 20 years.

One More Thing

I love old cars.
