Robert is our assistant pastor. He grew up in the Lighthouse and began serving as a youth leader at nineteen. His natural gift of camaraderie and influence in young lives found a calling in pastoring. As our youth pastor, he lead a team of dedicated helpers, preached, and regularly engaged youth outside of the church. Youth leadership has since been turned over to Matthew, while Robert focuses fostering connections for visitors and new believers. Robert has an associate‚Äôs degree in theology with an emphasis on church leadership from Portland Bible College. While Robert enjoys encouraging and supporting others to achieve their goals, he is also the first to get his hands dirty to help with any project, usually with a few friends at his side. A part of his ministry is through sports, where he coaches and plays baseball and other sports. The relationship he builds with his players carries into the church, where many begin attending and bringing friends. He has been married to Amy since 2006, and they have four young daughters, including twins. When not working, coaching, or serving, Robert enjoys movies and spending time with friends and family.
