Rob Georges was born in Marin, California and lived in the North Bay area until High School when he moved to Oregon. Rob holds a B.S. in Electronics and an M.A. in Biblical Studies and Theology. Rob moved to California after completing his undergraduate degree in Oregon and went to work in Silicon Valley as an engineer at Maxim Integrated. He began attending East Valley Church where he met and married his wife of 36 years, Judy. Rob and Judy have six children, three by birth and three by marriage. Dan and Tracy Newman are part of Garden City. Jeremy and Ann Marie Georges and Ryun and Jamie Georges also live in the area. It is a joy to have his children and grandchildren close.
Rob was raised by a Christian mother and Christian grandparents. His father was a merchant marine and was home infrequently. His parents were divorced while Rob was in High School and this profoundly affected his view of the marriage covenant and commitment as well as the pain that children feel as a result of broken marriages. Rob came to trust in Jesus and was baptized while in junior high. He continues his growth in knowing and yielding to Jesus through leading, serving at Garden City.
Rob’s passion is to see disciples making disciples. He disciples others regularly and encourages members of his Life Group to also participate in discipleship.
