Rob is the product of Fairfield West Baptist Church. As a young man just out of high school, Rob's life was changed in one particular church service. It was then that Rob surrendered to God's call of ministry and transferred from Miami University to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Upon finishing his degrees, Rob received an invitation to come back home and join the Fairfield West ministry team as youth pastor. In the year 2000, Rob was invited to serve as the senior pastor where he has continued to serve until the present.
Rob also serves as the Fairfield Fire Department Chaplain and a member of the Clergy Crisis Response Team. Fairfield’s Clergy Crisis Response Team was organized to support citizens who encounter traumatic events within the community. Recognizing that tragedy is not a respecter of persons, Rob helped in establishing Fairfield’s first comprehensive chaplaincy program which assists first responders in an emergency crisis, as well as extend an opportunity to be Jesus to those in need.
Rob is married to Jessica, the teenage love of his life. They met through ministry events here at Fairfield West. Clearly the church has had a more profound impact on Rob personally than professionally. Much of Rob's success in ministry is a direct result of Jessica's investment in his life. Together Rob and Jessica have 3 children; Jordan, Tanner and Madison.
Rob has a Bachelor of Science in Pastoral Ministry and Bible through Baptist Bible College. Also, Rob is a seminary graduate of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Virginia and has received a Master of Arts in Religion, a Master of Religious Education with an emphasis in leadership and a Master of Divinity.
