Meet The Pastor

Pastor Robert E. Walter and Wife Diane.

These days hope can be pretty hard to find. The world is so full of tragedy and grim news that it is hard to believe, or even hope, for good news. But at First Baptist Church we have found a reason to have faith in a brighter future and it’s not dependent on government or finances.

He and his wife Diane are Ohio Natives and when Bob was called to preach they moved to the Boston area to prepare for ministry training. There while seeing the great need of the East Coast, Pastored a church in the Boston area for 21 years. Bob and Diane have 4 children. Bob holds Masters in Urban Ministry, A Master of Divinity, and a Dr. of Ministry in Preaching from Gordon-Conwell.
