The Passing of Rob Sandford

Hello Everyone,

It is with a heavy heart that I let you guys know that on Sunday the 6th, Rob Sandford passed. As many of you all know from first hand experience, he was a generous and loving man, excited about his assignment in the kingdom. He led well, he served well, he loved well. Every conversation I was able to have with him left me feeling encouraged and excited about sharing the Gospel of Jesus with others. He was looking forward to continuing the work, however, now he has received his rest and gets to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ - the one he loved very much.

We will continue to keep his wife, Bettina, their daughters and grandchildren lifted in prayer.

There will be a service this Saturday, August 12th at 11 am, followed by a reception. It will be held at River Road Church, Baptist.

8000 River Rd, Richmond, VA 23229

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.”

‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬-‭8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Thank you, Rob Sandford. Take your rest.
