Bob Travis began serving as Lead Pastor of Bible Fellowship in August 2008, where his visionary leadership is helping equip the church to effectively carry out the Great Commission. His desire is to build a church that is passionate about seeing lives changed as people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their relationship with him. His philosophy of ministry is based on the foundational principles that biblical teaching is critical to the spiritual life and health of the church, and that ministry without prayer will have little eternal significance. His vision for BFC includes building strong community within the church family that promotes growth in Christ. He also desires to help mobilize the church to engage both its community and the world with the gospel of Christ.
Bob provides leadership to the elders and staff in the development and implementation of the church’s vision, strategic plan and ministry plans. He also oversees the worship and preaching ministries and shares in the pulpit responsibilities on a regular basis.
Bob is a graduate of Penn State and enjoyed a successful 9-year career in marketing before making the decision to go into full-time ministry. After earning a Master of Theology in Pastoral Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary, he served on the pastoral staff of two other churches before coming to Bible Fellowship. Bob and his wife, Janet, reside in Yardley with their three sons.
Tom Allen has served as the Teaching Pastor of Bible Fellowship since July 2005. His passion for preaching comes out of his belief that relevant, Christ-centered teaching promotes spiritual growth and points people to Christ. He focuses on expository preaching, which is the verse by verse teaching through books of the Bible that ensures believers get the whole counsel of God and not just certain topics out of balance. Tom believes that God has gifted all believers for the work of the ministry and therefore a high priority of the local church should be to help people recognize their gifts, develop them and be trained for the work of ministry. Tom’s love for the Lord is exhibited in his gift of evangelism and desire to share Christ with all who will listen.
Tom also serves full-time as Associate Professor of Cairns University. He is an alumnus of PBU and holds a Master of Theology in New Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. Tom and his wife, Tammy, live in Langhorne and have three children.
In his role as Pastor of Student Ministries, Jason Heim is able to help students develop a relationship with Christ that is intimate and lasting, challenge them to continually grow as disciples, as well as teach them how to share the gospel with their friends and family members. His desire is to create a ministry to youth that is both culturally relevant and life changing, drawing on the truths of Scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit to transform the lives of teens. His passion to know, love and serve the only true God spurs him to lead by example and build into the lives of both his youth staff and the teenagers he serves.
Jason also serves as Pastor of Worship at Bible Fellowship. His oversight of the praise band and involvement in worship planning allow him to use his musical skills and experience to lead the congregation into a deeper understanding and involvement in worship. His desire is for each person in each service to experience the presence and majesty of God in such a way that they are changed and their life enriched as they bring glory to God through the act of worship.
Jason joined the staff of Bible Fellowship in January 2006, and both the youth and worship ministries have flourished under his leadership. He is a graduate of Messiah College and earned his Master of Divinity from Bethel Seminary of the East in 2004. Jason and his wife, Leah, have a lively home in Levittown, PA, with their four young children.

In November 2010, Mary Jo was hired as Interim Director of Children's Ministries and in May 2011, she joined our staff as Co-Director of Children's Ministries.
