Welcome to the crazy Springer life, journey and daily walk of faith… 

I am a guy who has a talent for doing things the hard way and getting lost.  However, in my doing things the hard way and getting lost, I have learned some great life lessons, met some incredible people and learned the value of asking for help, along the way…

I wake up every day humbly thankful for God’s grace and mercy, an awesome family, four amazing sons, good supportive friends and the possibilities of another day in this world. I also believe that one of my greatest gifts and life’s pursuit is collaborating with and encouraging others to do great things.

I love  music, the arts, community development, interiordesign and am passionate about building relationships and meeting new and interesting people.  One of my greatest hopes is that I can use my gifts, passion an experiences to spread the incredible message of freedom that I have found through truth, love, grace and persistence to as many people as possible.

Over the last combined 20+ years it has been a privilege to serve; to serve our amazing country with the USMC during Desert Storm and as a worship/music leader, community planner and missionary in Hungary, AL, IN, CA, FL and TX.  It has also been a blessing to serve in small town America as the Executive Director of the Shelbyville, IN Redevelopment Commission.

I love working in higher education and community development. Throughout my life and experiences, literally around the globe, I have been blessed to meet, work with and learn from some incredibly talented, gifted and compassionate people.

I am passionate about diversity, inclusivity and engaging collaboratively (see pp. 24-25) with others to increase the quality of life for all people. I am also thankful I have been be able to bring my family back home to Texas…

Some collaborative projects I am proud of are the Soules College of Business YouTube Channel, www.experienceshelbycounty.com, ShelbyvilleCityVoice and co-writing and recording two original songs: “Change In Me” and “Lifting Me Up”.

One of my greatest desires right now is for the Lord to heal our son Samuel of Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) and for a medical breakthrough to end this horrible disease and rescue all the other children and families that are fighting this fight!

  1. Rob, I am very encouraged by your faith walk. I too pray for a cure for the different types of muscular dystrophy. You may not remember me; but , we met 2015 when you were part of the MDA. I lost my husband to myotonic dystrophy shortly before the walk. I was a little concerned that you leave your work history with the MDA out of your resumes. I was impressed with the work you did in the short time you were there. I wish you and your family God’s blessings. Cheryl Kinkoph
