Rob Peabody, of the Awaken Movement, is to work with Fresh Expressions to help develop a national strategy to encourage fresh expressions of church among young adults in Britain.
Rob is the co-founder and international director of Awaken, a non-profit charity that exists to resource the church for action. In 2011, Rob, left his position as campus pastor of a megachurch in East Dallas, Texas to pioneer and lead fresh expressions for 20s-30s in northeast London. He has been commissioned by the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention to explore church planting for young adults who did not have any previous links to church.
He currently serves as a missional consultant for multiple church networks in the UK, is a member of the speaking team at Spring Harvest, communicates on behalf of Compassion International, and has just led a new national UK 18-30s conference, The Pursuit.
Rob regularly speaks at conferences in the US and across Europe. His first book, Citizen, was published in September 2014, and he wrote a small group film series entitled Kingdom Rise (March 2013). His latest project, a five-week missional film resource, Intersect, was released in March 2015 as a tool to engage those on the outside of church in spiritual conversations. He is married to Medea, and they have two sons.
