Rob Anderstrom moved from Saint Paul in the summer of 2022 to lead Faith Baptist as senior pastor. From an early age, God has stirred in Rob’s heart an earnest desire to know and serve him. Rob received his Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Ministry from University of Northwestern in Saint Paul and his Master’s of Divinity at Bethel Seminary in Saint Paul. His wife and young daughter bring him much joy to his life! His favorite passage from Scripture is out of Ephesians chapter 2 where these words can be found:

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ” (Ephesians 2:4-5a NIV)

“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household” (Ephesians 2:1 NIV)

Rob is thrilled to be made alive by Christ’s love and mercy, and to be a part of his family here at Faith Baptist in Hampton.

Pastor Dustin’s faith journey has been anything but clean and neat, with the most important highlight being that he recommitted his life to Christ in December 2016, and he was baptized in 2017 on Good Friday. In 2018, he transitioned out of a career in Law Enforcement and started down the path to ministry with his wife and four children as his greatest source of encouragement. He has a passion for working with kids and young adults and seeing them grow closer to Jesus.
