He and Gabriela were high school sweethearts and now have 2 girls and a boy. Roth’s hobbies include reading novels, history and theology or watching foreign films.

Elder Bob GarvinElder Bob Garvin
Bob Garvin is one of the Ruling Elders at Redeemer OPC.  He lives in Danville with his wife Tesha and their 6 children, and serves the community as a physician and surgeon at Geisinger Medical Center.  He was raised in the Reformed Presbyterian Church (RPCNA) and attended Geneva College where he and Tesha met.  From there he attended Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia for 4 years.  Then he and Tesha moved to Pittsburgh for 5 years of residency training in General Surgery, then moved once more to Hershey for 2 additional years of fellowship training in Vascular Surgery.  During his years of training he and Tesha had memberships in RPCNA and PCA congregations.  He and his family moved to Danville in 2009 and have been part of Redeemer OPC since then. A year after moving to Danville, Bob participated in leadership training under Pastor Roth Reason, and became ordained as a Ruling Elder at Redeemer in 2011 when the church particularized.  Bob embraces Reformed Theology and solid Biblical preaching, both of which are foundational to the ministry here at Redeemer OPC.
