Robbie Symons

Robbie is the founding Pastor of Hope Bible Church Oakville. His greatest passion is to see Jesus Christ glorified and lives changed forever as people realize their potential only through His amazing power!
In 2003, God stirred a desire in Robbie's heart to step out in faith to be a part of something new. From this, a small Bible study began and by the power and grace of the Lord, it grew from a humble group of four people to a church of over 4000 today.

God burdened Robbie and the church elders early on with the conviction to plant churches. With a Spirit-led resolve to proclaim the Word of God without apology, to passionately worship His only Son, to believe firmly in the power of prayer, and to share the Good News with boldness, Jesus continues to build His Church. Through much prayer and God's grace, Hope Bible Church has seen the birth of several vibrant churches across Canada. Robbie's radio ministry through Hope Bible Church is called Live in the Light, it can be heard daily throughout Southern Ontario, Western New York, and the Atlantic Provinces. He is also the author of "Passion Cry: How Apathy is Killing the Church and a Passion for Christ Will Revive It." Robbie is a regular Bible teacher on 100 Huntley Street where he deeply desires to reach people with the word of God resulting in passion for Christ.

Robbie, his wife Gillian, and their four children live in Burlington, Ontario.
