Pastor Rob Dingman (Twickenham, UK) speaks with Mike about the dangers of convoluting simple passages with unnecessary complications and obscure details. Time is precious, so may we use it wisely!
Rob Dingman was born and raised in Seattle, USA. He has been serving Jesus Christ since 1974. He planted Calvary Chapel Twickenham in 2001.
Although exposed to Christianity from an early age, he found it frustrating. It seemed futile to go to church but not actually know God.
His connection with Jesus Christ became concrete when he heard the Bible taught chapter-by- chapter, verse-by-verse. Knowing God through what the Bible says became the focus of his life. Inspired by the example of his pastor, Wayne Taylor, Rob began reading, studying, and meditating in his Bible.
He travelled as a guitarist with the Robert Case Band across the US, the Far East, and Western Europe.
He and his wife moved to Germany to help plant Calvary Chapel Siegen in 1990. They moved to England in 1997 to help plant Calvary Chapel Westminster with Brian Brodersen. Along with planting Calvary Chapel Twickenham Rob has helped plant churches in Russia, Germany, and UK.
He is married to Joanie, their daughters are Holly and Katie. An important Bible verse for him is Romans 12:2
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
