Welcoming Rev. Rob Tulloch
Rev. Rob Tulloch
My name is Rob Tulloch and I was born and raised in Boise Idaho. I am an ordained minister with the Disciples of Christ denomination, a sister church to the UCC, and have ministerial standing in both. I have an ecumenical background having gone to a Catholic High School, working for a Methodist church for 5 years, Disciples of Christ for most of my adult life, and as pastor for the United Church of Christ.
I have been very involved in the Stone-Campbell corner of the protestant movement which gave rise to both the DOC and the UCC. Ecumenical work and interfaith initiatives have always been very important to me with my mixed background of faith groups.
In my ministry across the years I have endeavored to heal the wounds that have been done by the ‘church’ to groups across the spectrum. I see myself as a bridge builder and I work to bring in those who have been left out and craft a refuge in the church for those who are seeking to know God without judgement or hostility. I am an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and I advocate for better awareness of how People of Color are treated as well as how the Christian community interacts with other faiths. My ministry is one of Love, Joy, and Curiosity, and I try to bring that to everything I do.
While ministry is of the utmost importance, its always nice to know some of the personal bits as well. I have a wonderful partner, a grown son, and a dog and cat, which I’m sure you will hear me talk about at length down the road. My partner and I both love the outdoors, hiking, camping, going to the beach etc. I love to ski, play video games, read, and explore anything and everything that piques my curiosity. This will probably make its way into sermons and lessons and I seem to be a repository for useless knowledge, but that sure adds a lot of flavor for Sunday morning.
I have an open door policy, I am dedicated to transparency, and I am always up for coffee when folks want to chat about anything and everything. I look forward to meeting you all soon
