Meet Our Elders

  • Bob Wilson

    Bob Wilson was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. He and his wife Debbie met in Wilmington and have been married since 1979. They have two adult children and six grandchildren. They moved to Lexington in 2018.

    Bob has worked in industrial sales for the last 40 years. Since his salvation, he has also served bi-vocationally in several different capacities. He finds joy in serving the church through leadership and teaching, trusting one of his favorite verses, "For we are His workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10)

    Bob and Debbie enjoy spending time with their six grandchildren every chance that they get. It is one of the blessings of moving to Lexington, SC.  

  • Bruce Heimburger

    Bruce Heimburger was born in Michigan and spent most of his growing-up years in Port Huron, a small city north of Detroit. Bruce met his future wife Carolyn while both were working at the local library. The year 1975 was a busy one for Bruce and Carolyn. He graduated from the University of Michigan and then moved to Illinois to start his first job in June and then came back to Port Huron in August to marry Carolyn. They have three adult children and eight grandchildren and enjoy living in a new house 200 feet behind their youngest daughter! They moved to South Carolina in 1979 and have been in the Lexington area since 1996.

    Bruce has spent his entire working life in public libraries. He finished his career at the Richland County Public Library, retiring after serving there for 20 years as the head of IT. Bruce’s first encounter with the Lord occurred at age 11 at a local Youth for Christ meeting. At age 12 he publicly professed his faith in his home church. In college Bruce was active in Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. He can attest to  God’s sovereign grace and plan in directing not only his own family but also his extended family to live in the Southeast (“no Bruce, I don’t want you in South Dakota, I want you in South Carolina! Ask him about this sometime.)

    Bruce’s heart is to see people understand and put into practice Biblical truths. He is a firm believer in the value of the small group in the process of spiritual transformation. His desire is to see every Christ follower ‘attain to unity of the faith and of knowledge of the Son of God; to mature personhood to the measure of the fullness of Christ’. (Ephesians 4:13-14)
