Rob Willis is the Founder & Lead Pastor of Journey Church in Barrington, NH.
Pastor Rob was born and raised in Connecticut, having come to Christ at a young age. He attended Boston Baptist College in Boston where he met (and soon married) his wife, Krista in 1992. In 1993, Rob transferred to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in 1997. He and Krista then ministered in music and in pastoral ministry in Springfield until 2003.
After being ordained in September 2003, Rob & Krista, along with their two children, Seth & Kayla, moved to Rochester, NH in October 2003 to launch Journey Church. Journey began with 12 people in a small building on 124 Milton Road in Rochester to now where over 600 people call Journey their church home. Along with that, he led the way to start Joseph's Storehouse, a non-profit service provider in Rochester that provides meals and other services to the community.
Since its beginnings, Pastor Rob has led Journey Church through the challenges of growing beyond a church plant to being one of the area's effective and impactful churches. Pastor Rob leads the leadership teams at Journey Church, and also works to develop new leaders and pastors that God brings along.
Pastor Rob's greatest joys in life are his family and his dogs. He is an avid New York Mets, New England Patriots, and Star Wars fan. He has also been known to enjoy fishing & snowmobiling!
