|Title:||Deacon of Outreach & Benevolence|
Rob graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic College (now University), a Christian University located in West Palm Beach, Florida. He majored in Accounting, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1993.
Rob is a licensed CPA in Florida (since 1997), and North Carolina (since 2007). He worked in several finance positions while living in Florida, including three years as an auditor with the “Big 6” public accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand, and nine years as the Corporate Controller with The Breakers, a prestigious hotel and resort located in Palm Beach.
Rob gave his life to Christ in 2002, and shortly thereafter, began to feel God working within his heart to turn his life in a completely different direction. He increasingly felt compelled to leave his life of privilege and personal blessings behind, so he could follow The Lord’s will for his life…helping others.
Rob and his family briefly relocated from Florida in 2003, and then permanently relocated to Charlotte in 2005. He accepted a position with United Way of Central Carolinas, as their Controller, and worked there for almost two years. Rob felt his path to helping others was heading in the direction The Lord intended, however, still felt he wasn’t quite there yet. In early 2007, Rob became a licensed Real Estate Broker, and began helping home buyers and sellers with their real estate needs.
Then, in 2009, Rob was richly blessed by The Lord in several ways. First, he met his beautiful wife, soul mate, and love of his life, Monica Sosebee. Rob and Monica subsequently married in the fall of 2010. Second, early one morning, The Lord awoke Rob with a vision of a “Real Estate Charitable-Giving Ministry” HE wanted Rob to start and operate, all for HIS glory! Rob obediently started this ministry, called “Homes with Heart”, http://www.homeswithheart.com/ and The Lord has continuously grown and prospered this ministry, ever since.
Aside from being blessed with his wife, Monica, Rob has also been blessed with five wonderful children, and four beautiful grandchildren. Rob has three grown children, Allison, Stephanie and Bobby, and two younger daughters, Jessica and Julia.
Rob, Monica, Jessica & Julia began attending the Matthews Church of God (MCOG) in August 2013, and became members in November 2013. Rob rededicated his life to Christ, by water baptism, at the MCOG on 3/9/2014, and was installed as the MCOG Deacon of Outreach on 1/25/2015. Rob and his family feel VERY blessed to have finally found their true church home, and look forward to continuing to serve the Lord, and to being a blessing to the MCOG family, and to others!
