When he was consecrated a Bishop at The Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, even the friend who arranged the event didn’t know that Robert was the one being elevated to the episcopate.
He’s been one to deliberately take a back seat, preferring to serve in a support role and lift others up. He often says, “True leadership is never about title and position, it is ALWAYS about trust and servanthood. If serving is beneath you, leadership is beyond you.”
Deep pains have shaped him; teaching him that the answers to life’s toughest questions cannot be found within himself. Only the Rock of Ages is a strong enough foundation for a life lived by faith. Only Jesus can lead us in victory by His Spirit.
His life reflects what his friend Bishop Tony Palmer used to say, “Diversity is divine; it’s division that is diabolic.” He’s a bridge builder. He loves to draw people back to the relationships they don’t even know they need, or sometimes even want.
Most of all, Bishop Robert is determined to PRESS ON, to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of him … and to invite you to join him for the journey of a lifetime.
Bishop Robert holds Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Master of Theology degrees from Faith Theological Seminary, as well as a Doctor of Ministry degree from Aidan University.
In the secular realm, he also holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Leadership & Organization (Summa Cum Laude) from Logos Graduate School.
