About Our Former Pastor
Rodney (Rod) M. Bowman has served Westview Christian Church as Pastor from 1995 through 2019.
Rod was raised in a Christian home and came to faith in Christ at a young age. But over the years, through all the twists and turns of his travels and travails through life, Rod says that he has found that God is faithful, His forgiveness is complete, and His love is unlimited.
Rod holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from what is now William Jessup University, and a Master of Divinity from the Seminary of Lincoln (Illinois) Christian University.
Rod is a charter member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. He served for fourteen years as a law enforcement chaplain in Sonoma County, and currently makes himself available as a chaplain for Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital. Rod is also an accomplished musician and vocalist. He is married to the former Diane Sagert of Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. The Bowmans have three adult children and three grandchildren.
