Vocational ministry is a second career calling for Rob. After spending eleven years in banking, Rob graduated from Dubuque Theological Seminary and was called as teaching elder to Spirit of Life in September, 2012.  There is much to be excited with what God is doing at Spirit of Life.  Rob enjoys the many opportunities he has in ministry to share time with others.  As our Triune God is a relational God, Rob treasures our interconnectedness we share with God and one another.  Rob shares a special interest in establishing relationships with the un-churched and de-churched through hospitality that welcomes others at Spirit of Life, and by getting to know our neighbors out in the marketplace.  His wife, Lisa, is a nurse practitioner serving at the University of Minnesota Fairview, working with heart failure and heart transplant patients.  They have two sons: Cole, who is 13 and Luke, who is 10.
