Our Pastor


  • PASTOR ROB SPENCER

    Pastor Rob served at our sending church, Calvary Baptist Church, from January, 2010 through 2012. Prior to serving at Calvary, Rob served in churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia in various pastoral roles from children, to youth and family, to music, to administration, to lead pastor. He studied at Moody Bible Institute before attending Liberty University (B.S. in Religion) and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.R.).

    Pastor Rob is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and it is his desire to encourage, teach, and inspire others to live a life of radical commitment to Jesus as well. God has blessed Rob and his wife, Kelley, with three wonderful children, Ella, Jack, and Levi.

He also received his Master of Divinity from Liberty University in 2010. In addition, he received his Doctor of Ministry Degree in 2013 from Liberty University. In 2007, Josh had the honor of being named Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary’s preacher of the year and also had the honor of preaching to over 8000 students during their convocation on May 7, 2007. In May 2016, Josh took a positon as Church Plant Strategist for the Southern Baptist Conservatives of VA and is responsible for seeing a church planting movement throughout Richmond and central VA.

    Josh has been married to Stacey for over 20 years and they have 3 children; Caleb, Laura Ruth, and Anna. His hobbies include hunting, horseback riding, and family time. His greatest desire is to see his children grow up to be followers of Christ and serve in His kingdom.
