Pastor Rob Engler is our Lead Pastor. He has been married to Amy Engler for 22 years and they have 6 children: Brianna, Madison, Abby, Kiera, Evan, and Hadley. Spending time with their family is one of the greatest joys of their life. Whether it be fishing, camping, hiking, boating, or any one of the various things they do, they are energized by the memories created simply by being with their children.
One of Rob’s greatest passions is doing life together with the people God has surrounded him with. Rob has never been one to simply go to church on Sunday. He takes fellowship as a way of life, by which he strives to include everyone around him: family, neighbors, strangers and even those one might consider enemies. As a pastor, one of Rob’s responsibilities is to equip the saints to actively accomplish this biblical concept of life together.
