When you ask Pastor Rob his passion his reply is, "I love teaching people the Word of God and seeing them grow spiritually". His deep love of music was instilled as a young boy, and continued after graduating from Rochester High School. He then completed a 4-year music curriculum at Oakland University. Pastor Rob has written numerous musical arrangements for us here at Heart. With his desire to follow God’s Word wholeheartedly, he has realized the blessing of living for God, and that clearly shows in his teachings and sermons.
Ordained in 1981 by Charles & Francis Hunter in Houston Texas, where he then served as Music Director and Staff Pastor, the Lord spoke to Pastor Rob about starting a new church in his hometown of Rochester, Michigan. The church was to be spirit filled, believing in healing, and filled with the sounds of joyful worship. And that's how Heart of the Hills came to be, and is!
Heart of the Hills is everything Pastor Rob envisioned . . . A compassionate congregation. A superb praise & worship band. Monthly men's ministry. Woman's ministry. Weekly youth group. Detroit Bible Quizzing group. Children's church for different age groups. And, a nursery for toddlers.
He also counts his blessings for his wonderful Scottish wife, Linda, who has launched the women's group called “The Woman's “Heart”, and also sings on the worship team. She is so supportive of the Pastor and the church in every way.
