Associate pastor

Pastor Robb may have been born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but shortly moved back to his family’s hometown of New Richmond, Ohio.  Having grown up in the United Church of Christ as well as the Nazarene Church Robb made the decision to accept Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior and was baptized at the age of 15 and became a member of the Mt. Carmel Christian Church. 

Moving forward Robb made the decision to follow in the footsteps of his youth pastor Russ and go to school to become a youth pastor as well.  However, after one semester at Cincinnati Bible College (now Cincinnati Christian University) Robb decided to join the United States Marine Corps.  Serving on active duty for about a year and a half Robb became a Marine Reservist and went back to school to finish his degree. 

While in school Robb worked with the inner city youth of Cincinnati serving as a Boy’s Youth Director at the Oakcrest Community Center as well as the After School Director and Summer Camp Director for the Gamble Nippert YMCA.  Pastor Robb was ordained into the ministry as he served as the Youth Minister for the Northern Hills Christian Church in Dayton, Ohio.  From there Robb became the Youth Pastor at Hebron Church of Christ. 
In 2003 Pastor Robb graduated with his Bachelors in Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies as well as with an Associate in Psychology.  After graduation Robb moved to Kempton, Indiana to become the first full time Youth Pastor at Kempton Christian Church.

After serving in the ministry for several years Robb decided to move back to Ohio to explore what other opportunities God had in store for him.  In 2011 Pastor Robb started a career with Standard Publishing, one of the largest Christian Publishers in the world and most recently, with the well-known Christian publisher David C Cook. 

Christ has led Robb through many different paths and obstacles to lead him back to the ministry.  With his wife Katie and three awesome children; Silas, Grace, and Molly they live in Moscow, Ohio on a small farm that they affectionately call Olde Glory Farm.  There they have chickens, rabbits, goats, pigs, cats and dogs.  They also run a CSA and Katie provides beautiful cut flowers and arrangements for all occasions. 
Pastor Robb and his family are very excited to be a part of the Living Roots Church.  Robb has many roles at LRC.  From taking care of the youth and children's ministries to web page development, graphics and marketing, and outreach.  Robb is looking forward to seeing what God has in store for the youth of the church and youth of the local community as well as watch LRC do awesome things for the Kingdom of God.
