Rob moved to Forest with his family in the spring of 2010 to begin working with Mercy Presbyterian Church. The church had been meeting for some time as a second site of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Lynchburg. As the group in Forest continued to develop, Rob was called to pastor the new congregation. Previously, Rob and his family were in Athens, Georgia where he was the campus minister with Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Georgia for 11 years. Rob and his wife, Angie, are both graduates of the University of Georgia. Rob is also a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Rob and Angie have three children: Emma, Lucy, and William.
