Some of us chose our own paths in life. For others, the path is chosen for us. And if you’re Rob Hughes, the senior minister at Broadway Church in Sedalia, Missouri, the path will call you to ministry after years of working in a completely unrelated career field. In this episode of OUTdrive, Cliff sits down with Rob to talk about his unorthodox journey from the glitz of the West Coast film industry to a pulpit in the Midwest.
Rob has been the lead pastor and head of staff for nine years, following a nine-year stint serving in ministry in the Denver, Colorado area. Prior to his calling to ministry, Rob spent 15 years working on a variety of projects as a producer, editor, and director for National Geographic, Disney, Rocky Mountain PBS, and others. In addition to church ministry, Rob also serves as a chaplain for the Sedalia Police Department, a Commissioner for the Synod of Mid-Missouri, and is a member of the Pettis County Ministerial Association. Rob earned his Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary and studied film and communications at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
The local church has always been a pillar of small-town communities. Tune in to hear about the rewards, the challenges, and the revelations that come with leading a church staff and congregation in today’s world.
