Pastor Bob Totino
Group Life Pastor


God has hardwired every individual with a desire to reach their highest potential; to become everything God created them to be.  This desire was woven into our spiritual DNA.  The problem is, however, even though people are intrinsically compelled to become their best, it is impossible to get there on our own.  We all need a little help.  

This is where I come in.  After trying to become what I believed I could and failing miserably, I finally tapped into the ultimate source of help - Jesus Christ.  From that point on, my journey was set.  I would become an individual that God had designed to help people become immeasurably more than all they could ask or imagine according to God's power that is at work within them (Ephesians 3:20-21).  

Since entering pastoral ministry, I have focused my attention on helping people become.  The first eight years of ministry focused on youth.  Then for 12 years, I planted a church in Dallas, Texas and focused on helping the unchurched discover God and ultimately their on path to becoming. I am now in Spearfish, South Dakota at Countryside Church where we are developing groups that also help people reach their fullest potential.  This is done through one-on-one coaching, life groups, mentoring groups, recovery groups, classes, and other various small groups.
