Greetings, I’m Rob Collier, one of the adult mentors for the 9th /10th grade class. This will be my 13th year as a leader in the youth group program. I’ve been with various classes over these years, but have predominantly been with this age group the most. Previously I had been an elementary Sunday School teacher for umpteen years. At one time DCPC offered Sunday school for the high schoolers, and as our kids grew older, I segued into teaching that class before it was disbanded.
I have 3 kids that are now grown and officially adults. We have 2 sons and a daughter, who are currently 23, 21 and 18. Our oldest son is in the IT world and has been living and working in Northern Virginia since January. Our younger son is a senior at Ohio University. And our youngest, the daughter, has just started as a freshman at UNC Wilmington. So now, my wife Lynda and I are regrettably (my point of view) beginning our next phase of life as empty nesters.
Professionally I’m a bookkeeping clerk for a small company down in Charlotte. I moved to Charlotte 34 years ago from Ohio, have been a Davidson resident for 21 years and a member of DCPC for about 20.
If free time happens to come my way, I volunteer at the North Carolina Transportation Museum up in Spencer. Usually working in the roundhouse on mechanical projects or with the public as a host for various events. Other than that, there is nothing remarkable about my life. I like taking long walks on the beach and yearn for world peace.

Despite my age, I’m still a kid inside!
