As Youth Director, Rob is excited to build and cultivate a dynamically engaging, discipleship-driven, and community-rich Youth Ministry at Garden City that is excited about growing disciples throughout the Silicon Valley.
Rob LeLaurin is a California native and is married to the love of his life, Bethany. Rob is passionate about reaching students with the good news of Jesus and seeks to create a welcoming culture within the youth ministry at Garden City, that is characterized by being a community where students are known, loved, and experience a deep sense of belonging. As the son of a pastor, Rob grew up in church all his life, but really came to fall in love with Jesus during his teenage years. His excitement for youth ministry stems from his own personal experience of coming to know, love, and follow Jesus fervently during those formative years.
Some of Rob’s favorite activities include having good conversations with great friends, playing card games, reading thought-provoking books, exploring new ideas, eating amazing food, experiencing different cultures, and traveling the globe. Rob graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a B.A. in Biblical Studies and is currently pursuing a M.Div. at Western Seminary.
