PastorRob2Pastor Rob Rabenstein 

My name is Rob Rabenstein and my beautiful spouse is Jackie.  We have two adult children.  Kelly Donohoe, who is a Psychologist.  She is married to Tom Donohoe, a businessman.  They have our two grandchildren, Ella and Anna.  Kelly, Tom, Ella, and Anna live in Swissvale.  Our son is also Rob.  He is a mechanical engineer.  He is married to Julie, who is also an engineer.  They live in New Alexandria.  We have been blessed in that we love our children's spouses as if they were our own children.

Jackie is very active in the community and especially active with our children.  She currently spends Sunday evening through Wednesday evening in Swissvale with Ella and Anna, overseeing the gutting and remodeling of Kelly and Tom's home.  Jackie is a former aide to PA Commonwealth senator Gene Porterfield, Director of the Alzheimer Foundation for several counties, director of Highway Safety programs for Westmoreland county, is the past President of the Scottdale Historical Society, and was one of the guiding forces in the restoration and conversion of the historic Loucks House to a bed and breakfast.  Jackie, also, has been responsible for the restoration of our Queen Anne Victorian home.  This has been an ongoing project for the past ten years.  One thing you can count on is Jackie being busy.

I have been in the insurance and investment business for 37 years.  I have an office in Scottdale, PA about three blocks from my home.  My goal is to be divested of my business in the next two years, so that I may be in full time ministry.

I have been involved with the Boy Scouts as a Pack and Troop leader.  As a lay person, I have sat on every committee within the church and have been a Lay Leader and Certified Lay Speaker.  I felt called to the ministry about thirty years ago.  I was in the middle of building a career and family and ran and hid my face from God.  One thing you can be sure of, is if God wants you, he will get you, eventually.  About five years ago, I finally answered God's call.  My first charge was at Chalk Hill/Samsom Chapel.  Currently I am enrolled in a course of study through the United Methodist Church.

Jackie and I are very happy to be with you and look forward to meeting and communing with everyone!
