Robert grew up along the coast of Virginia Beach, VA where he developed such a love for his native state that he decided to attend Washington and Lee University. He graduated from W&L in May of 2014 with a BA in Religion and German. Most importantly though (thanks to RUF), he carried with him a new-found love for the person and work of Jesus Christ.
From 2014-2016, he served for two years as a RUF intern at the University of Georgia. It was during the internship that he met his wife, Katherine, who also served as a RUF intern. Even though she attended Wake Forest University during her undergraduate years, Katherine originally hails from Leland, MI.
Upon graduation from Reformed Theological Seminary at Charlotte in 2019 with a Masters of Divinity degree, Robert planted RUF at Michigan in the Fall of 2019. He was officially ordained in March 2020 as a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
When he is not on campus, you’ll most likely find him taking his son, Peter (July 2018) and/or his daughter, Abigail (December 2019), for a walk in the park. He will find any excuse to play the board game “Settlers of Catan” with friends, or especially on nice days, explore downtown Ann Arbor with Katherine. Go Blue!
