Hey there! My name is Robert and I’m originally from Eugene. I trusted Jesus for the first time as an incoming freshman in high school and was transformed by His Spirit over the course of my high school years. That, along with the amazing leaders and mentors I had in that season, led to my deep passion for seeing high school students learn to follow Jesus. It truly is my greatest passion.
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Kaylee (who is so much cooler than I) since August 2018 and welcomed our daughter (Ellie) in August of 2020 and our son (Tucker) in November of 2022! Kaylee is a leader in our high school ministry and it’s the best getting to serve alongside her. I love to ride motorcycles, play disc golf, scuba dive, be in the outdoors, drink chai, and spend time with people. I get to do a lot of those things at my job, which is a pretty neat thing.
As the high school pastor, I get to lead our students into truth and toward maturity while seeking to bring in high schoolers who have never known Jesus. What a great gig! My prayer is that this ministry would be honoring to our Lord, and that this would be THE place for high schoolers in Salem. I look forward to meeting you!
