The Reverend Bob Martin is a native Floridian whose background has entailed many paths that have led him into the ordained ministry. Prior to answering his call to become a pastor in 1993, Pastor Bob spent years working in the secular industries of high tech electro-optical laser manufacturing as well as being a professional recruiter with a national company. His understanding the challenges of what hardworking people go through brings a unique perspective to his teaching ministry as a pastor.

Creating a culture where people can get in touch with the God who created them and know fully His love and desire for them to live their life’s dreams, is central to Pastor Bob’s purpose. Deeply believing, “We all have two innate needs in life: to love and be loved”, Bob focuses on helping others remove the barriers that hold them back from living that purpose and with God’s leading, strives to give others the tools to find a deeper sense of Christian love and calling in life.

Pastor Bob’s desire for St. Paul UMC is to be a church with relevance and intentionality within the community it serves. Having people hunger for what God desires of their life is central to this plan as the church lives its mission to: Glorify God, Grow in Faith, and Give in love to others.

The Reverend Pam Dubov was commissioned as a deacon on June 18, 2016 and serves as St. Paul’s Minister of Outreach and Missions. In her position as deacon she guides the St. Paul congregation with an outward focus on the needs of the community. Pam will be forever grateful that she received her “later in life” call to ministry after years of work in the secular world.

Before she entered the ministry, Pam earned a BA degree and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Pam also received Master of Business Administration and law degrees. She served as the senior manager of the Pinellas County Property Appraiser’s office for nineteen years before being elected Property Appraiser for two terms. She completed her seminary education at Asbury Theological Seminary.

She and her husband Bruce were married in 1981 and moved to the Tampa Bay area at the end their military service. Pam has three step-children, eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Pam is humbled by God’s call and confident that God has placed her and St. Paul together for a season of service that will embody the Deacon’s call to ministries of Word, service, compassion, and justice. Pam’s daily hope and prayer is that she, our staff, and every member of our congregation will live into the words of St. Paul’s namesake when he said:as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another…as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” (Colossians 3:12-14)
