With more than twenty years of ministry experience, Robert Linder has been involved in preaching and teaching at youth camps, conventions, and youth worker seminars; he has served in pastoral staff positions as well as the role of Senior Pastor, including his current role as Pastor of Grace Apostolic Church in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.  He has served as a District Sunday School Director and a District Home Missions Secretary with the United Pentecostal Church and as a Chaplain for the local Fire Department.  Robert is also a gifted songwriter, worship leader, and recording artist.  His greatest passion is preaching the Word and seeing lives transformed by the miraculous power of God.  With humor and compassion, he makes Biblical principles relevant and easy to apply to daily life encounters.

Robert has been married to Deedra Linder since March 1993, and they have a beautiful, above-average daughter named Emalie.  When the Linder family is not nestled safe and snug in their peaceful home, they love to add stamps to their passports!  They have had the tremendous privilege to minister to churches, youth groups, and at youth camps and conventions throughout the U.S. and Canada and in Italy, Germany, Austria, France, and Sri Lanka.

Robert has completed a certification program in Paralegal studies and is currently working on a degree in Religious Education at Great Lakes University.  In addition to his work in church ministry, Robert has many years of work experience in the travel industry with a major airline and in the hospitality industry with Marriott, International.

Robert’s hobbies include reading, travelling, and “hanging out” at home with his family.
