Who am I? Well, my name is Robin. I have over 30 years of ministry experience as a pastor, musician, teacher, and student ministry leader. In addition to being Pastor at Shepherd of the Mountains, I am also the Pastor at Our Savior in McCall. I received a Bachelor’s degree at California Lutheran University in Biblical Studies and Music, a Master’s degree in 1980 at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary as well as receiving a Doctorate in Ministry Leadership and Spiritual Formation through the Azusa Pacific University School of Theology the fall of 2008. I am also an Adjunct Professor in Biblical Studies at two Universities in the Western USA. There are a number of things that I am passionate about - worship, biblical study and application, leadership development, student ministry and being part of a "revolution" in actualizing new paradigms of ministry in our culture. I am the author of Worship Experiences (Gospel Light/Regal), a contributing author in the book, The Gospel according to Superheroes (Lang, 2005), I have been a "behind the scenes" editor of some other books, as well as a frequent contributor to blogs and websites for Missional Praxis and Student Ministry. I enjoy music, guitar playing and recording, surfing, reading, hanging with my wife, Vicky and roller hockey. I love sports and our amazingly beautiful recreational community in Valley County. I also have a voracious appetite to learn and grow as a Christ-follower. I have three children, four "in-laws", and seven grandchildren.
