Hi. I am Pastor Bob Scheurer, the pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Rockford, Iowa. I have been in the ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America since 2008 and serving Zion since 2012. (Zion is a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America)
I received my B.A. from Thomas Edison State College in Trenton, New Jersey in 2000 and a Master of Divinity Degree from The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia in 2006.
I am a second career pastor, who in the first half of my work life worked as a Mechanical Inspector in my family’s Tool and Die/Job Shop. I am married to Diane, my spouse, for 21 years.
Before coming to Iowa, I served as associate pastor at a 6 congregation Geo-parish and third time as a chaplain at the local nursing home in North Dakota. I served on the board of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota and the Nomination Committee of the Eastern North Dakota Synod. I have been a chaplain of the North Iowa Detachment of the Marine Corps League, and have also served the Northeastern Iowa Synod as a member of the Nomination Committee, Conference Chaplain, Conference Treasurer, and Conference correspondent.
I am honored to be able to serve the people of Zion Lutheran Church, during this chapter of their life of faith and ministry.
I invite you to come visit Zion Lutheran Church and consider becoming part of this community of believers. It will make a difference in your life.
Robert (Bob) A. Scheurer,
