Rob has spent the majority of his adult life pastoring and planting churches in Spokane and around the world. Rob was the founding pastor of New Community, a large church in the Spokane area that has been involved in launching six other churches. After several years working as the President of the international church planting organization, Communitas International (formerly Christian Associates), Rob returned to full-time pastoring with the founding of Immanuel Church.
He holds a doctoral degree with an emphasis in missional church leadership and serves as an adjunct professor at Whitworth University where he teaches on the subject. He also shares the leadership of the PNW Movement. Rob’s view of church ministry isn’t complicated – he wants to start churches for people who don’t like church; ones that are beautiful expressions of the Kingdom of God, churches that actually understand a missional/incarnational orientation to their existence.
