He is an ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church in America, and serves on the board of the Pennsylvania Family Institute and of Covenant Theological Seminary.

He is a collector of books on every conceivable subject.
He is a passionate believer in the truth that “life is all about relationships” and has been devoted to showing the love of Jesus in developing healthy relationships, healing past relationships, and breaking the chains of wrong behavior patterns. When he attended an RW 360 seminar for the first time, he was immediately struck by the excellence of the presentation and felt called to be a part of this ministry. Since becoming a certified instructor, he has presented the seminar to groups ranging from the faculty and administration of a small Christian school, to the staffers of an organization that works with the PA state government.
Robert and his wife, Barbara, have been married for forty years and have five adult children, four children-in-law, and (so far) three grandchildren.
