Robert Shepitka

Pastoral Team Leader

Robert SRob_Isabelhepitka was born in Rockland County, New York (a suburb of NYC). He is married to Isabelle, who is also from Rockland County.

In 1988, Robert and Isabelle moved to upstate New York. In 1997, Robert and Isabelle became part of the family of Light of the World Christian Church. In 2006 Robert was asked to join the Pastoral team fulltime. After serving for eight years, Pastor Robert became the leader of the Pastoral team of Light of the World Christian Church.

Today, Pastor Robert and Isabelle reside in Latham, New York and believe that God’s hand was in their transition to upstate New York from the start. Having been placed in one of the most challenging parts of the country to share the Gospel, they are confident that where sin abounds, grace much more abounds. They have a great love for the regional church and wish to see it strengthened by a return to the centrality of Christ, a love for all people, and a return to consistent corporate prayer. They expect to see the transformation of individuals and communities for the glory of God.
