Rev. Roberta Lee Bella
Born and raised in Ohio, Rev. Bella came to Pleasant Run in 2009 by way of Michigan, Kentucky and Southern Indiana. She loves being back in Ohio and especially at Pleasant Run Presbyterian Church, a congregation which never ceases to amaze her in its generosity, compassion, and concern for the surrounding community. For her the Church is not a place but a people called to love and learn and grow and share the joy of the most meaningful rewarding relationship one can have – with God through Jesus Christ.
