Win People to Jesus Christ — Disciple Them in Faith — Help Those in Need
Pastor of Discipleship
According to noted author John Eldredge in his book Wild at Heart, men in churches today are bored. Rob Renfroe believes that’s because most churches today offer a version of spirituality that often doesn’t appeal to men. His passion is to change that. As pastor of adult discipleship, Rob is charged with helping all adult members of the church to grow in their faith, to discover their calling, and to find a place to serve Christ and others; but he is especially drawn to serving the men of the congregation. He leads the popular Quest, attended by 300 men on Tuesday mornings and 225 men on Sunday evenings (eight weeks each fall and spring). “We’ve been successful with Quest because we treat men like men and talk about real life issues that matter to them,” Rob said. Because of his leadership and example, hundreds of men are walking paths of integrity and assuming roles of spiritual leadership in their homes and community.
Rob, a graduate of Rice University and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, has served The Woodlands UMC for 16 years. In addition to his work at The Woodlands UMC, he has served as the national chairperson for the Confessing Movement and is currently the president of Good News—a national organization committed to the doctrinal integrity and spiritual renewal of the United Methodist Church.
Rob has been described as a visionary, insightful, and quick-witted. When he’s not serving others, he and Peggy, a fitness instructor and his wife of 33 years, enjoy listening to live music at The Mucky Duck. The Renfroes have two sons, both in their twenties, Ian and Stephen.
