Pastor Bob Beal has been married to his best friend Rosemarie for over 30 years. PB received his call to preach when he was 7 years old but ran from the Lord for the next 30 yrs. In 1984 on the verge of committing suicide the Lord sent a man into his life. This man Rene LaCasse was used mightily by the Lord to bring PB back to the Lord. June 23, 1984 PB accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and started on the journey of being about His Father's business. PB is a graduate of the Church of God (Cleveland, TN) Ministerial Internship Program. PB was involved in Youth Ministry as a leader and Youth Pastor with the Manchester Church of God for 14 years.
After constantly insisting that he would never be a Senior Pastor, PB was touched by the Lord and accepted the Pastorate of the Nashua Church of God. After about 6 months PB became terminally ill. His wife Rosemarie was told that he probably would not live without a heart transplant. PB and Rosemarie both had a total peace even though all the reports were dire. Throughout his convalescence PB and his wife never lost hope and always gave God the glory for his healing even though no one else saw it. After being told by the doctors that he would be on oxygen for the rest of his life and never be able to pastor again, PB replied "you don't know my God".
Sometime in 2004 PB feeling like he was having a heart attack he went to have an ultrasound of his heart done. While there he cried out to the Lord and asked why this was happening. The doctor came into the room and stated "we can't find anything wrong with your heart. In fact you have the heart of a 16 year old'! When PB asked the doctor if there had been a mistake the doctor replied I just told you your heart is perfectly normal. You don't need my services anymore. PB asked the doctor if he still needed a heart transplant and he replied "I just told you your heart is perfect. Now I don't want to see you for at least 2 years'. Still on oxygen PB started back in the ministry slowly. Finally in 2007 and off oxygen for 2 years PB and his wife realized the vision that God had given them of ministering to the homeless and economically challenged and planted the ARK Church of God. God has been blessing their ministry and continues to do so.
As for the picture on my page it is a joke. I have always told everyone that I was a missionary to Hooksett, NH, the picture was taken at Disney World.
