He began his teaching career at a Christian school in Aurora, Colorado where he taught general music, speech and drama, instrumental music, and directed musicals such as Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, and Sound of Music just to name a few. It was in Aurora that he felt a call to music ministry and after teaching there for 7 years,Pastor Bob went to Madison, Indiana to become a music pastor at Madison First Assembly Church where he was in charge of praise and worship teams, choir, a student instrumental ensemble, and musical productions. Pastor Bob directed the adult choir and directed children’s musicals as part of his work in Madison, IN.
In 1994 he expanded his ministry as the Children’s Pastor of Lakeview Christian Center also directing children’s musicals with over 100 children attending the weekly practices and the performance. After serving as the Children’s Pastor for 6 years, he helped to pioneer a new church plant from Lakeview Christian Center in Avon, Indiana. Pastor Bob was not paid the first year in Avon so he began teaching private instrumental lessons in the public schools to make a living. He was a private teacher in 5 public schools, where the band directors arranged the lessons for the teachers and the parents paid the teachers.
In 2006 Pastor Bob and his wife, Debbie, felt a call to plant a family integrated church, Cross Generations Church in Franklin, TN. Coming along with him was his gift for teaching music to children.
