About Rob
  • Education: I graduated from Stetson University (Go Hatters) in 1992 with a B.A. in English and Religion and then went on to Princeton Theological Seminary from 1992-95 and graduated with an M.Div. Currently I am in the Doctor of Ministry program at Fuller Theological Seminary. Fuller has been the most amazing educational experience of my life. If you’re thinking about further study, Fuller is a great place to do it!
  • Experience: I’ve served churches in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Florida, doing everything from youth ministry to administration before serving as Pastor of First Baptist Church in Lancaster, SC from 2001-2007. Now I serve as the founding Pastor of Brookwood Community Church.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Enjoy these sermons! I enjoyed writing them and delivering them. Preaching is one of the things I enjoy most about ministry and life. It’s the whole process really from exploring the Bible to finding the perfect illustration to pouring everything God has poured into me into the lives of the people I serve. God is amazing!
  • Family: I’ve been married since 1992 to Tammi, the love of my life. We have two children, James and Jonathan, who remind me constantly how important following Jesus is not just in front of people but at home as well. We love watching movies, playing games, traveling and reading.
  • Hobbies: I love to run, play golf, watch movies and spend time with friends. I love politics and follow the news like a junkie.
