Pastor Rob

Basic Stuff

I was raised in Beaver Dams, New York a small town in the Southern Tier. It was in the spring of 1990 that I accepted Christ as my Savior and then four years later I felt a call to full-time Christian service. As a non-traditional student I was able finish my education and was ordained as a minister in the Wesleyan Church. I am so grateful for a loving and supportive wife (Karen), we have two adult children, both of which are married and we have three grandchildren!
