Church Staff

Dr. Rob Weber, Pastor

IMG_7251Rob Weber is a native of Atlanta, Georgia and has lived in multiple regions of the U.S. as well as in Germany and England. On the way to becoming a pastor, he has worked in a wide variety of settings, including construction, cooking, waiting tables, and counseling. This diversity of experience gives him a specific passion for people who are not involved in the church, an understanding of their needs, and a fresh, humorous, down-to-earth style of communicating.

Rob has become familiar to churches in the United States and Canada as the teacher in the video based discipleship formation series Beginnings. Other works include ReConnecting, ReConnecting Worship, Visual Leadership, and Igniting Worship: Communion. He is the founding pastor of Grace Community United Methodist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, has served as Director of Congregational Development & Transformation in the Louisiana Conference, and is a frequent speaker and teacher at churches and conferences across the United States and abroad.


Kathe Deroche, Nursery Attendant

Supported by a host of volunteers, Mrs. Kathe makes sure infants, toddlers, and young children feel welcome, nurtured, and loved while in the nursery. She is usually in the rocking chair reading a book to a child, or on the floor playing with blocks… the children love her and we do too!
