who is Rob

 

Rob is a Child of God. Rob is a husband and father. Rob is a friend and a pastor....In that order.

 

Husband:

Rob met the former Tracy Flores in 2005. He had just been hired to be the youth director at First Presbyterian in Vero Beach, Florida and Tracy reached out to him to welcome him to town, although she lived out of town. It didn't take long for them to become best friends and to fall in love. They were married in 2008 and are still best friends.

Tracy is a 2x graduate of Ole Miss and is a Licensed Hospital Social Worker.

Dad

Together, Rob and Tracy are the parents of 2 awesome kids: 

Liam is 10 and has plans to be the first ever MLB player who retires to the NBA who then retires to be a professional golfer....at least that was the plan a week ago.  He is in 5th grade, is in Spotlight, on the chess team, and made Principal's list for straight A's.

Adalyn is 7 and wants to be an inventor and scientist. She is a natural performer, is extremely inquisitive, and is constantly drawing photos or writing her own songs. She is in second grade and has never made a grade lower than an A+. 

Together, the family likes to travel, go to Grizzlies games, eat out, cook out, and play until the sun goes down.
