Who We Are

Pastor Rob is originally from Southampton, NY and is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. He holds a B.A. degree in Pastoral and Church Ministry.  His wife, Kelli, is from Owego, NY.  She is a Nurse Practitioner with a Masters in Nursing. They both met in Haiti serving as missionaries. They lived in Haiti for eight years, and then in the Dominican Republic for seven years. They returned to Florida in 2008. 

Pastor Rob and Kelli began their walk with God when they were dropped in the middle of the sugar cane fields of Haiti without any knowledge of the Creole language. Within a few months Kelli had set up and was running an outpatient clinic and Rob managed and developed a school of Haitian children. After meeting and getting married in 1991 they continued their ministry in Haiti before later moving to the Dominican Republic where they founded a non-profit ministry called Island Impact. They continue their ministry to both countries by leading several missions teams a year.
