As an un-churched/ non-believer growing up, Rob experienced what it was like to not have faith in his life. Because of this experience he has a passion to reach those who do not know Jesus. As the senior Pastor of Our Savior’s he has led this growing congregation to a new awareness of the community around them. He is an apostolic leader who seeks to reach the lost through authentic, embodied lives of believers as they live out their lives in the world around them. Before entering the ministry Rob was in the business world for 16 years. Rob and his wife, Sherrill, have been married since 1987 and have been blessed with two wonderful daughters: Daniela and Mya. In his free time Rob enjoys Golf and spending time as a family together on mission.
