Rob Benardo, Senior Pastor
Pastor Rob calls his Story “bound for Freedom”:
As a youth he was seemingly “bound” by hanging out with the wrong people and doing worldly things, when all along God had in mind freedom from the chains that enslaved him. From growing up in southern Florida and moving to Southern California, Pastor Rob was introduced to the Adventist message by a blind Chiropractor and soon after, went off to college at Heartland college in Virginia and then Andrews University in Michigan receiving his masters in pastoral ministry. Pastor Rob also studied special education for a year at the masters level and also was a real estate broker in North Carolina and owned a development company called Ciani enterprises. Pastor Rob’s wife’s name is Olga. He has 2 wonderful daughters named Amaris and Alexia. Pastor Rob enjoys spending time with God in the outdoors, in studying His Word, and in writing poetry.
