Rob Long

Pastor of Media

I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My parents moved to Colorado when I was around three months old, I’ll never forget that trip… ok I don’t remember it at all, but I’m sure it was quite an adventure! I trusted Christ when I was 7 years old. I attended a small Christian school in Arvada from 4th grade until my junior year when the school closed. I have no doubt the Lord led me to the next Christian school for my senior year, as it is where I met my amazing wife, Julie. We were married in 1991. We had two precious baby girls less than a year apart, but the Lord chose to take them home, our first an hour after she was born and the second just minutes before she entered this world. We know God is in complete control and look forward to seeing them again and spending eternity with them soon! We were then blessed with three incredible kids that we are so very proud of, Austin in 1995, Makena in 1998 and Josh in 2001. We are blessed way beyond what we deserve! God is so good and has been so incredibly faithful!

What is your favorite season & why?

Honestly, I love all four seasons we have in Colorado, mainly because I love scenic/wildlife photography!

What is your favorite treat or snack?

Well, by looking at me you can tell I’m not too picky… love me some peanut M&M’s!

What is your favorite movie?

That’s a hard question… I love Raider’s Of The Lost Ark, Fletch (just about anything with Chevy Chase), and pretty much anything Disney!

What is your idea of a perfect day?

Either a crazy nonstop day at Disney Land/World or sitting on a lanai sipping guava juice looking at the ocean.

What is your favorite quote?

We are always in the forge, or on the anvil; by trials God is shaping us for higher things.
Henry Ward Beecher
