Pastor & Ministry Team
Senior Pastor: Rob Dingman
Rob Dingman was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. He met Jesus Christ in 1975. That was his introduction to the Calvary Chapel philosophy of ministry: simple worship, cover-to-cover exposition of the Bible, and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. He spent those first years learning as much as he could from his pastor, Wayne Taylor, as well as being introduced to Bible teachers such as Chuck Smith, Gayle Erwin, and Roy Hession.
In 1977 he began playing in various Christian outreach rock bands, eventually playing for seven years in the Robert Case Band. RCB began reaching out beyond their comfort zone, first travelling across the United States (1983) and then to New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines, and Japan (1984). The Lord gave them a greater desire to reach the Japanese through the vehicle of music. He led the band to move to Japan to live and minister for 1988-1989. God called Rob to the ministry of preaching the gospel and teaching the Bible during this time. After the year in Japan RCB ministered six weeks in Germany, Sweden, and Poland.
In 1990 Rob and Joanie moved to Siegen, Germany to assist Nick Long in planting Calvary Chapel Siegen. In 1997 they moved to London to assist Brian Brodersen in planting Calvary Chapel Westminster. Rob began Calvary Chapel Twickenham in April, 2001.
Rob married Joanie in 1986.Their first daughter, Holly, was born while they were in Germany (1996). Katie was born in England (1998).
