Leadership

Pastor

Pastor Rob and Beth Worthington are both natives of Southeastern PA and met in their home church, Faith Baptist Church, Sellersville, PA.  They were married in 1985 while Rob was in seminary.  In 1987, they left the States to serve the Lord in the Philippines where they trained national pastors and established local churches in which these pastors have continued to serve the Lord.  In 2003, Rob and Beth returned to America and to the Catskill region of NYS where they worked with a church plant and a promising Bible study for another church.  In 2008, they began working with Asians as a part of Baptist Church Planters.  This led them to move to Schenectady, NY, where they worked closely with the Filipino community and built up a contingent in Calvary Baptist Church, Albany, NY.  Baptist Church Planters then asked Rob and Beth if they would be willing to go to New Milford, CT, to help Bible Baptist Church recover from a tremendous decline in their attendance.  They began working with Tim and Marsha Weeks in September of 2013, and have continued on ever since.  Pastor Rob’s goal is to see Riverview Baptist Church (formerly Bible Baptist Church) become revitalized as a strong independent church again.  The Worthingtons have four children in various parts of the world.
