You have reached Robin W. Pifer’s blog and ministry page. I am married to a fantastic and godly woman Gwen or GG to our grandchildren. We have five children, two married and I am “Chief” to our grandchildren. We are a ministry family providing effective leadership in three Fellowship churches.
I have been a pastor for over 30 years, and I am currently the lead pastor at Oxford Baptist Church in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada. I have the privilege of pastoring 5 churches through a church renewal process. You might think I am crazy to do that, but I have so many God stories to share and have learned so much about what it takes to lead a plateaued or declining church or organization to healthy growth and revitalization.
I have been in National denominational leadership serving as the Fellowship Baptist’s Vice President for a term (www.fellowship.ca) conducting Healthy church seminars, consultations, and coaching leaders in a variety of churches and faith-based situations across Canada.
Currently, I coach and develop spiritual servant leaders. Consult churches in transition or in need of church revitalization while coaching boards or search teams in clergy search principles to discover their next leader. If your church needs help in these areas, please see my contact information.
I enjoy speaking at conferences/retreats, coaching emerging or established leaders, consulting in churches and businesses. I am also a certified coach, speaker and consultant with the John Maxwell Team.
I am a long time Sonlife trainer and able to assist church boards and staff teams to renew their mission/vision and establish clear ministry/business priorities for revitalization to take place. In a few hours of time, I am able to work through with the board/staff with onsite or online training to reestablish a clear mission and vision for the organization while providing an ongoing coaching process to have the leadership team on the same page to follow through with a clear plan. I have also assisted churches and businesses in their transition between leaders by preparing the organization for this critical transition along with providing professional search services if necessary.
To augment my leadership experience, personal training and mentoring I have a BTH from Tyndale University College and Seminary (Toronto), an MBA from Liberty University and I am soon completing a PhD in Biblical Leadership Studies.
My life goal is to leave a lasting legacy of Spiritual, Servant, Sacrificial, Submitted Shepherding Leadership.
