Rob Morris: Lead Pastor

Born to an Air Force Dad and Mom, Rob just happened to be "passing through" Tulsa, OK when he was born! His Mom very quickly brought him back to Houston and then even more quickly to a 50 acre farm out in the Piney Woods of East Texas. It was there that this hyper-active child enjoyed his Collie, pet cow, baby calf and all the other farm animals (not to mention all the awesome country cookin' straight out of the garden!) A great life for a very introverted, quiet, stationary kid like Rob (kidding!)

It would be 8 years later that the family would move to the bustling metropolis of Buna, Texas where Rob would finish high school, come to know Jesus and ultimately respond to the Lord's call to full-time ministry. Rob graduated from East Texas Baptist University with a Bachelor of Music degree in All-level Music Education.

Rob is crazy about his beautiful wife and ministry partner, Bev, as well as his three sons, Blake, Ryan and Dylan. Rob enjoys everything outdoors, especially water sports! Rob and Bev started The River in 2003.
