Bob is a member of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Hamilton, GA, where the bishop has appointed him as Lay Pastoral Leader.  He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Candler School of Theology.

Bob is a chaplain at Piedmont Fayette Hospital and President/CEO of the non-profit organization Health Facility Institute.  He serves on the Advisory Board of the Church of the Common Ground.

His professional career has spanned over four decades in the architectural field, with a mission of designing facilities that offer healing and wholeness of life – in our healthcare environs. This expertise has taken him across the world, from Alaska to Kuwait to China.

Bob is a national thought leader and frequent speaker/lecturer of design/healthcare trends at national conferences and academic venues such as SCAD, Clemson University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Auburn University.

Bob’s call to ministry began in his early twenties and has always been founded on his deep faith in Jesus Christ and the theology of a God who is inclusive of all, offering divine love and redemption to everyone.

In his role as Pastoral Leader, Bob will be responsible for leading worship, including training others to lead the Daily Offices, preaching, and providing pastoral care and oversight for the congregation.
