A Leadership Team with a Godly Vision
We are blessed to have some of the most committed and well qualified specialists on our leadership team. Their prayerful dedication to their call and their prayerful hearts leads us all closer to Christ.
Rev. Rob Griffith, Rector
Fr. Rob was ordained to the priesthood in 2018. Before becoming Rector at St. Gabriel’s, he served as Rector of Church of the Holy Spirit in Apopka, FL. And before that, he spent several years as a fundraiser for Third Millennium Ministries.
Born and raised in California (please don’t hold that against him…), Fr. Rob moved to Florida with is wife, Christi, in the summer of 2005. Their plan was to finish school in three years and move back. God had a different plan. Over Seventeen years and three boys later, Fr. Rob and Christi think they have finally gotten used to the Florida humidity.
Graduating from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2009, Fr. Rob loves to teach the Bible. His ministry passions are preaching, teaching, and leading worship. He has a passion for all to hear and know the Gospel news that God is at work redeeming and reconciling his people back to himself.
One of his favorite hobbies is roasting coffee. He still dreams of getting his pilot’s license. And he has a long-time passion for the space program. “I love all things space related and I still can’t believe that I get to be this close to so much history being made over the next decade. This is definitely a bonus coming to Titusville!”
Fr. Rob comes with his wife, Christi… and his three boys, Brennan, Soren, and Caedmon.
