Fr. Robert Lewis describes the ministry as, "Learning to grow the Kingdom of God by loving one soul into it at a time". He is passionate about servant ministry, stewardship, strong preaching, community outreach, contemporary, emergent, and traditional liturgy. He is always looking for something new to try to build a healthy church and help others discover passion for Jesus.
Fr. Robert has received an Associate of Arts from St. Petersburg College, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of South Florida, a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry in Congregational Development, both from Nashotah House Theological Seminary. He was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Fr. Robert has a precious son, Edwin. Fr. Robert's hobbies include sewing, violin, piano, guitar, antiques, sailing, and entertaining. Perhaps most unique to Fr. Robert's ministry is his commitment to equipping and raising trained leaders to serve the church. His book, Curacy Express: A Training Resource for New Clergy (Wipf and Stock Publishers) offers a self-paced training curriculum for newly ordained priests.
