Robert became the Worship Pastor of New Bethel in August of 2018. Robert was born and raised right here in Norwood and has attended New Bethel from birth. As a multi-instrumentalist himself, Robert's passion is to help blossoming musicians discover and cultivate their own talents while also learning how to use those gifts for the glory of the Kingdom.

"Meaningful worship is more than just reciting words you see on the screen. We want to provide a musical foundation and atmosphere that allows people to become lost in the Lord's presence. Forget your inhibitions and insecurities, lift your hands, move with the music, close your eyes or look up to heaven, do whatever feels natural to you... Worship should be an intimate moment between you and God, don't worry about what other people might think." "It doesn't matter HOW you worship, it only matters THAT you worship."
