Rev. Dr. Rob Reimer is currently Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, NY. Classes he has taught include: Personal, Professional and Theological Foundations for Ministry; Evangelism; Mentoring; Pastoral Methods; Soul Care; Proclamation & Communication; Spiritual Leadership; Power Encounter; and Intimacy & Authority.  Though he came to the seminary full-time in Fall 2017, he has been teaching there in the doctoral and master’s programs for 15 years while serving as Founding and Lead Pastor of South Shore Community Church, in Brockton, Massachusetts. Under Rob’s leadership, what began as a small group of eight believers mobilized on a mission to start a new church, resulting in hundreds of people coming to faith in Christ. Many of the examples and stories from his books come from the lessons learned as he walked with God and processed pain in marriage & ministry, finding freedom and fullness in Christ.

Rob is an accomplished author. His books, Soul Care, Deep Faith, River Dwellers, and Pathways to the King  have sold worldwide, and are currently being translated into other languages.

A gifted preacher and communicator, Rob preached weekly at South Shore Community Church and is a sought-after speaker. He regularly speaks at conferences, leadership retreats, mission fields, churches, and seminaries in the United States and abroad. His sermons are posted online.

Rob was Ordained as a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by the Christian and Missionary Alliance in 1993. He earned a bachelor’s degree in English from King’s College, a Master’s of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate in Preaching from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
