On behalf of St. Gabriel's
Search Committee
and the Vestry,
we are excited to introduce: 

(Fr. Rob)
Ordained Priest in the Central Florida Diocese of The Episcopal Church in 2018, he is coming to us from Church of the Holy Spirit in Apopka, FL. 

Your Search Committee was impressed by Fr. Rob's biblical preaching, sense of humor, heart for pastoral care, passion for communicating the deep spiritual truths of the liturgy to youth, and his evident love of God. 

Father Rob is skilled in Nonprofit Organizations, Theology, Leadership, Discipleship, Teaching and Preaching. He is a strong business development professional with a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Reformed Theological Seminary and Anglican Certificate from Gordon-Conwell Seminary.
He is also an Experienced Development Officer with a demonstrated history of working in the religious institutions industry.  

He is married to Christi Griffith and together they have three boys. His hobbies are roasting coffee and a fascination with the space program. As Civil Air Patrol Cadet in California, he even finagled his way onto the Edwards lakebed to witness the third space shuttle landing. 

"I'm a bit of a coffee connoisseur and have been roasting
my own for several years
(maybe a Saturday morning roasting lesson in our future).
I still dream of getting my pilot's license. I love all things space related and I still can't believe that I get to be this close to so much history being made over the next decade. This is definitely a bonus coming to Titusville!"
Also Introducing Christi Griffith: 
A performer of classical music, Christi has  performed classical vocal works internationally. Native of Southern California, she spent her college years in Nashville, Tennessee, studied classical voice abroad in Munich, Germany for a year, and taught at a classical and Christian school in Southern California. With Father Rob, she is raising three boys and maintaining a private voice/piano studio, performing stage productions and directing musicals and book plays as she is able.
Together they will celebrate 21 years of marriage this March. They both have ministry experience throughout their adult lives. They love music and beauty, especially in worship. They are excited about the art scene in Titusville and full of ideas on how to build a presence for the church there. 
Here's the Griffith family: 
Caedmon (9), Brennan (15), Father Rob, Christi, and Soren (13).

Please hold them up in your prayers as they prepare for a
big change in their lives.

Launch window is set for mid-January
