Our church is led by a number of Spirit-led, gifted, and passionate people—volunteer as well as staff—who serve in specific leadership roles designed to impact lives at The Garden, our local community, and the world.
After growing up in the small, desert town of Barstow, CA, Robert came out to the big city to attend USC and pursue God’s call upon his life. As a freshman, he attended the Garden for the first time, and the rest as they say, is history. He then went on to Fuller Theological Seminary, graduating with a Master of Divinity, all the while serving in college ministry. Currently, Robert serves as the Pastor of Christian Education, and is bi-vocational, working as a financial planner. He has a passion for teaching God's Word and seeing lives transformed from the inside-out. He enjoys writing and playing guitar, when he’s not playing with his kids or finding new ways to make his wife laugh. He lives with his wife, son, and daughter in the San Fernando Valley.
