Meet the New Life Staff

Pastor Rob Carlson

Rob Carlson has been the pastor at New Life since 1996. He is married to Dianna and has two children, Erin and Ryan.

As he’s related, his greatest thrill about being a pastor is to witness people growing in their spiritual lives and connecting in profound ways with God. “Life is intended to be a journey. It has it’s ups and downs; highs and lows. But what makes it all consistent, worthwhile, and leads to fulfillment and satisfaction is dancing the dance that God hardwired into our souls from our very beginning.”

Rob is a student of the church and culture, looking to explore the many ways that God impacts the world and calls us to be God’s heart, habits, and hands. He recently received his Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
