About Dr. Roberts

I first heard Dr. Roberts at the 2014 Christ at the Checkpoint Conference in Bethlehem. I was impressed with his passion for the good news of Jesus and his love for Muslim people.  He is also the founder of Glocal.net, a Christian organization whose mission is “relentlessly pursuing peace and reconciliation among all people in all places for all things.”  Here is Dr. Robert’s bio from the glocal.net website.

Dr. Roberts is the Founder, Senior Leader, and Chief Spokesman for Glocal.net. His primary focus is connecting leaders and establishing relationships to create transformation. He is the founding Senior Pastor of NorthWood Church near Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. As the leading practitioner and writer on glocal transformation of individuals, religious communities, non-governmental organizations, cities and nations, Bob has worked extensively in Vietnam, Afghanistan, West Bank and Gaza, Indonesia, Syria, Belize, Egypt, Turkey, Kenya, Nigeria, Europe, Australia, Iraq, Iran and other countries. Pastor Roberts has been called upon by the United Nations and various State Departments around the world to assist with humanitarian and reconciliation projects. He works with leaders from different religious backgrounds to promote greater understanding and to assist with engagement projects.

I was honored and encouraged by my conversation and interview with Dr. Roberts. I hope that you will be as well.  It is short notice, but please check out spreadingpeace.net.  This is an event taking place Oct 22, 2014 in Washington, DC, designed to bring together Christian and Muslim leaders for the sake of “sharing mutual concerns, and building bridges so we can spread peace”.

About the author

I’m a husband, father, and one of those friends who has a terrible habit of not returning phone calls.  I’m really just trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus, and I enjoy meeting great people along the way and maybe having a chance to spend time talking about things deep and trivial.
