Robert’s life was turned upside down in his college years when he encountered an ordinary college student who absolutely shined with the love of Jesus. After asking how he could have that same kind of life and learning it came from a day by day intimate friendship with God he has never been the same. Robert’s passion is to be a friend of Jesus and teach others to do the same.
Robert was on the church planting team that launched Antioch Community Church in Waco, TX in 1999. He served as both College Pastor and eventually U.S. Church planting director for the Antioch Movement. After almost ten years of college ministry, Robert sensed the Spirit’s leading to plant a multi-ethnic, multi-generational church in San Diego. In the spring of 2008 He and Stef led the team that launched All Peoples Church.
He and his wife Stefanie have four children thus Robert is a great diaper changer, piggy-back-ride giver, and bed time story teller. In his free time he loves to hike, surf, fish, and play sports.
