Our Speaker:

Pastor Rob Calabretta from the Korean United Church of Philadelphia
Rob came to know Christ during his college years, and was called to a life of ministry shortly thereafter. He has a heart for seeing both, believers and non-believers encounter the risen Christ in the Word.
He received his M.Div from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. In his free time, he enjoys coffee, art, biking, Seinfeld reruns and driving in heavy traffic, (yes, he finds it therapeutic.) Both he and Sara have a heart for Queens and long to see the Church grow and flourish there and throughout the world.
