Rob and Ruth’s Bio

   Pastor Rob Morris has served the Hobart area for over 23 years.  He was born in Sheridan, Wyoming and lived the first 16 years as around the Bighorn Mountains of North Central Wyoming as a pastor’s kid. The family moved to Montana in 1974 and Rob graduated from High School in Seeley Lake, Montana in 1975.

   Rob attended Prairie Bible Institute of Three Hills, Alberta, (80 miles northeast of Calgary). He graduated with a Bachelor of Religious Education degree with a minor in music in 1979. During his senior year at Prairie, he met the love of his life, Ruth (Smoker) Morris and they were married on October 13, 1979. God has blessed them with 3 children, Rick, Ryan, and Rachel, and a beautiful granddaughter, Lianna.  They were blessed to be able to live in the Pacific Northwest and raise their children in the Hobart/Maple Valley area. 

   Over the 35 + years of ministry, Rob, Ruth and family have served 5 churches, helping to plant and serve rural churches in Northern California, Montana, and Washington with N.I.C.E. (Northwest Independent Church Extension), the church planting ministry of the Pacific Regional Conference of the IFCA International.  Rob felt God’s call to serve rural churches and areas of the Northwest where there are struggling churches, or helping plant churches in areas where there was no Evangelical Gospel Preaching ministry. 

   “I love the independent nature of the rural people, and have seen God work bringing many to Christ as Savior, and growing to serve Him faithfully. It is great to have been in this community for almost 24 years as I am now getting to see the fruits of labor in the lives of the children that the Lord has brought to Himself over the years.  Getting to watch them grow, marry, and have families of their own. Seeing them raise there families in the Lord is a great blessing in my life.  I hope to be able to meet you personally, and share the wonderful truths of God’s Word with you.”
