Rob has been in ministry for over 25 years and has worked in six different churches and five different denominations but most of his experiences have been in affluent towns or suburbs like Scottsdale Arizona and Pleasanton California. Rob is a native of the Spokane area and has deep roots in this region.
He is a father of five outstanding kids and works alongside his incredible wife Tonia in building Street Wise. He has been a musician and recording artist in Christian music, but currently uses his guitar and vocal skills for church services and occasionally plays his favorite classic rock and country tunes at several wine bars around town. He loves outdoor sports, hunting, fishing, riding his dirt bike in the mountains, and is an avid reader.
Rob holds a Masters of Divinity from Western Seminary, a Graduate Certificate in Ministry from Multnomah School of the Bible, and a Bachelor’s in History from Eastern Washington University. He has served on the board of the Spokane Homeless Coalition, which comprises 70 different non-profit organizations and government agencies as well as on the board of Streets of Hope, an organization building orphanages and schools in Africa.
