Assistant Pastor Robert Stansberry and wife Maureen Stansberry
In 1977, the Lord gifted Grace Assembly with the addition to our ministerial staff of Pastor Robert (Bob) Stansberry and his wife Maureen. Through the years, Grace Assembly has been enriched through Bob’s faithful ministry of God’s Word on Sunday evenings and his wife Maureen’s ministry in music. Robert (Bob) was born in Santa Ana, California in February 1948 and grew up in Orange County, California until his service to the U.S. Army from 1968 – 1969. He moved to the San Diego area where he met and married Maureen McClain in March 1969. They were blessed with two children, Renae in 1970 and Jason, in 1974. Bob worked in the construction industry eventually becoming a concrete contractor. Maureen raised her family while working in San Diego School systems as a special educator retiring in 2013.
Bob accepted Christ in 1956 and was filled with the Holy Spirit in 1959. He felt the call of God to minister the Gospel after finishing his military service. In San Diego, he continued ministering with a Christian youth group and with various Pentecostal churches in the area. In 1977, Bob and Maureen visited Grace Assembly, where his mother attended and was invited to preach. He continues to receive great insights into the Gospel of grace and glory as well as prophecy. He was ordained by Grace Assembly and continues to serve as Assistant Pastor of Grace Assembly.
