This Sunday: Lt. Col. Robert Sweet

This Sunday’s Worship Service
This Sunday, we will take a break in our study in 1 Kings.  In light of Memorial Day next Monday, we  have invited Lt. Col. Bob Sweet to share from the pulpit on Sunday during our worship services.  Bob is now retired from the Air Force and, along with his wife Pat, he has been a member at Surfside Presbyterian for the past 10 years.

Bob has an lived an illustrious life with over 30 years’ experience in government service and corporate employment – as an Air Force pilot, a U.S. diplomat, a public affairs spokesman, a military attaché, a college lecturer, a special investigator, a corporate aviation director, and special project manager.

Bob has also worked with Dale Carnegie Training since 1987 and has helped numerous organizations achieve their training and productivity goals in government entities such as Defense Intelligence Agency, Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Customs, State Department, Department of Education, and corporations such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Computer Associates, and Nextel.  In various capacities, Bob has represented U.S. government organizations and interests in 43 countries and conducted executive level coaching for senior officials of six government agencies / departments.

He holds a commercial pilot’s license and has accrued over 7,000 hours of flight time.

Oh yes – and Bob also has a vibrant walk with Christ!  Over the years he has seen Christ work throughout his life, giving him multiple opportunities to share his faith.  We are looking forward to hearing from Bob this Sunday.  See you then!
