Bob and his wife, Sandra, officially accepted the call to pastor Wolcott Christian Life Center in November of 2009. The church was founded in 1955, but prior to the Rulewicz’s arrival the congregation suffered attrition and was without a pastor for some time. Their work, since arriving, has been to restart the church, once again laying a spiritual, administrative and ministry foundation so as to become a viable witness of Christ in the community. The church is growing!
Pastor Bob and Sandra bring to WCLC over 35 years of pastoral and ministry experience. Both are 1977 graduates of Elim Bible Institute, Lima, NY, and Bob holds degrees from Southwestern University of the Assemblies of God, Wachahachie, TX and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, S. Hamilton, MA. Pastor Bob is an ordained minister and has been credentialed with Elim Fellowship Inc., of Lima, NY, since 1977.
The Rulewiczs have a wide range of ministry experience, serving as pastors, Bible teachers, youth camp and youth ministries directors, international short-term missions workers, and have served as missionaries in Matachi, Chihuahua, Mexico, where they lived, serving as co-founders and on-site directors of the School of Missions Mobilization.
Pastor Bob is passionate about helping people to develop in their relationship with the Lord and to translate that into who they are and what they do. He and his wife, Sandra, have been happily married for nearly forty years and live in Wolcott.
