BIO

My name is Robbie and I have been working on staff at MMO in various capacities since 2014. Currently, I am the Mission Agency Director where I am privileged to serve the greatest missionaries in the world.

My studies in Pastoral Ministries and Missions equipped me to serve as a Pastor in Central America for 7 years, then as Spanish Pastor and Missions Pastor in Baltimore, Maryland, for 7 years before following God’s lead to work full-time with MMO.  

My why in life is to reach the unreached and to help others do so as well. If you’ve ever wondered how your unique passion and talent can be used to point others to Jesus, then I hope you’ll reach out to me. I’d love to help you find your calling.

 

Fun Facts About Me

My favorite trip is anywhere in Central America. I love Latin American culture and feel most at home there. And I never turn down a pupusa.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever received is to always seek out the quietest, most isolated person in the room and try to make them feel included.

If I could invent a holiday, it would be National Taco Day. That might already exist, but it’s definitely not widely celebrated enough. More. Tacos.

One piece of advice I’d give prospective team members is to share your experience with others. You never know who might be inspired to take a trip because you did.

Cats or dogs? Fish. Because they are more fun to catch. 

If I could snap my finger and become an expert at any one thing, it would be aviation. I’d love to be able to visit any country at any time, no matter how remote.

The most inspiring part of my job is listening to someone’s heart, how the Holy Spirit is leading them, and then assuring them that we can help them answer His call. The mission field needs pastors and teachers, yes, but also physicians, nurses, dentists, graphic designers, accountants, mechanics, and all other types of people. There is a place for you!

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be mind control. I’d use this solely on my children, don’t worry.

What Our Volunteers Say
