Welcome to my blog!

My name is Bob Castelline. I’m a worship leader in Norwalk, Iowa, whose job description also includes things like outreach, discipleship, communication, and whatever else God decides should be there. I play guitar, bass, and keys; I write songs; I sing (although not as beautifully as Chris Tomlin); and I play drums in my dreams.

In my previous life (or career, same thing), I worked in journalism, public relations, and marketing. Before that, I spent almost 14 years in the U.S. Navy, riding submarines, of all things. How’d I end up in ministry? No earthly clue except that it appears that was God’s will.


Outside of work, I’m hopelessly addicted to golf. Seriously, I need a 12-step program.


Why won’t the ball just go into the hole?


I’ve been married to this woman since May 16, 1981. It may seem┬álike a long time, but we’re just getting started … we’ll be spending eternity together!


Meet Elaine, God’s gift to me and the very breath in my lungs.



I’m also a grandpa. Her name is Lucy. Go ahead, all at once: “Awwww.”


There she is … cutest girl on the planet.

There you have it. That’s me. Who are you? I’d love to know.
