Since 2000, Rob Cripps has been in full-time pastoral ministry as a Youth Pastor, Church Planter and Lead Pastor of a multi-site congregation. Rob successfully led The Summit Church and Westmount Park Church through a merger, which is now Capstone Community Bible Church where he has served since 2008. Rob has a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies from Briercrest Bible College, a Masters of Theology from McMaster Divinity College, and is currently working on his Doctorate of Practical Theology at McMaster Divinity College, with an
emphasis on ecclesial reconciliation. Rob is a sought after speaker and has spoken at a wide variety of seminars and conferences. After experiencing a church split early in ministry, Rob became passionate about reconciliation ministry. In 2017, Rob was introduced to conciliation through Judy Dabler of Creative Conciliation. This
transformative event led Rob to begin his pursuit in becoming a Certified Christian Conciliator with ICCPeace. In 2018, Rob co-founded Pathway Conciliation (patwayconciliation.com) and is now ministering
to families, churches and organizations through his conciliation ministry.
In 2007 I began working as a Regional Manager for a Christian international relief and development organization in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. It was there that I saw first hand the utter devastation that unresolved conflict can have on nations, tribes, communities, families, and individuals. A passion for peacemaking was sparked as I saw the power of God and His Word usher in lasting peace and reconciliation to complex and longstanding conflicts. I have a B.A. Honours Degree in History from University of Winnipeg and a Masters of Arts in the History of Medicine from Queen's University. I am currently completing my Doctoral studies at York University in Canadian History and am being certified as a Christian Conciliator through ICCPeace. I have tasted the freedom and peace of being reconciled to God and to others for myself. I look forward to the privilege of walking with you on your own journey towards healing and reconciliation.
