God made His presence known in Robert's life at the age of 8 by revealing to him our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Robert’s belief in Jesus as Savior began at that time. Later in life came his belief in Jesus as Lord.
Robert began learning guitar at the age of 8 and this lifelong development includes experiences playing in a variety of groups and venues. Robert says “as God builds His kingdom He is building an aggregate, or nation, of people that praise Him, and God's revealing of this vision is His invitation to join Him in this work.”
Robert believes that his development as a musician, vocalist, and sound engineer, and his membership in Bearing Armor is about joining God's work of growing people's belief in Jesus Christ, and about joining God's work of drawing people to worship Himself through praise.
