The Rev. Cn. Dr. Rob Droste

Canon for Congregational Development and Mission


808 W. State Street
Trenton, NJ 08618

Ordained to the priesthood in San Francisco in 2000, Rob served two successive Bay Area congregations until his 2014 call to the Diocese. A career public relations and marketing executive, Rob’s philosophy of church growth strongly rejects cookie-cutter “church growth” activities. Instead, Rob and his 40-person diocesan coaching team focus entirely on helping congregations become schools of discipleship, ready and eager to talk about Jesus and pour their lives into the lives of others.
