Our Pastors

Senior Pastor Bobby Goddard was born in West Virginia. After giving his heart to God at the age of 20, he, along side his mother began to preach revivals throughout their local area. In 1959, he moved to Chicago but vowed to only stay for 2 years; however, God had other plans. He began attending a local Pentecostal church pastored by Rev. William Hankins and soon became the assistant Pastor. In 1970, he assumed pastorate of the congregation, later renamed Northside UPC. Pastor Goddard is known for his down-home style of delivering the gospel and you won't find a friendlier, more humble man anywhere. Pastor Goddard's heartbeat is to reach the city of Chicago and let them know that God loves them no matter their race, creed or economic status.
Pastor Goddard served as a chaplain at Cook County jail for seven years and currently serves as presbyter of the Chicago Metro UPC churches. He is the proud father of 2 children, Timothy and Rebecca, and his two grandchildren are the joy of his life.
Pastor Goddard, along with his wife, Jean, would love to make your acquaintance at a service soon.


Pastor Tim Goddard was born in Chicago, IL in 1963. At the tender age of 8, God filled him with His spirit. As a young adult, he realized there was a call upon his life to preach but didn't pursue his calling immediately. After heeding God's call, he assisted his father for several years before being elected co-pastor in 2003. Pastor Tim's desire is to take the timeless message of God's grace and salvation and apply it to modern day issues. He loves the city of Chicago and believes that God has miraculous things in store for it.
He and his wife, Marilyn, are proud parents of one son, Devin, and a daughter, Chelsea.
