Reverend Robert A. Miller
Pastor Bob and his wife, Rochelle, moved to Milan in 2013, when he became our pastor at Marble Memorial United Methodist Church. His ministry experience includes both rural and city churches and combines his talents in education, communication, biblical and spiritual knowledge, pastoral care, and leadership.
Before making his transition into ministry, Bob worked for many years in automotive engineering, a career which took him around the world. His education includes degrees in mechanical engineering, business administration, and most recently in divinity. Along the way, he was also a professional musician, with a love for classical and jazz.
When he's not busy with his ministerial duties, Pastor Bob loves to spend time with his wife and three grown kids.
We are blessed to have Pastor Bob’s passion, dedication, and energy.
