Rob Keranen

Studying the Word of God every day these past 25+ years has made Rob Keranen’s life truly meaningful, and took him from a life of self interest that had left him empty into a life of fullness. The greatest gifts that God has given him are his wife Katie, his seven children, and five grandchildren. Attending VAST church since its inception and living in Sisters for over 20 years has given him a large number of great friendships which he is so grateful for.
Rob’s background since his mid-20’s has been primarily in the computer industry. He held a number of sales and management roles early in the history of the PC industry, worked at IBM as a Business Partner, and spent almost 20 years with an international technology-consulting company. During those 20 years he held sales, operations-management, and director roles to help build company client sales and outside business partnerships. Needless to say, he has witnessed a lot of change over 40 years of technology!

Rob’s role at VAST 

As Director of Operations, Rob uses his background to help execute the vision and mission of ministry for the church as directed by the VAST Elder team and to help them with support on operation, communication, and administrative tasks to free them up to shepherd the VAST family.

Also, he helps to foster growth and coordinates activities within ministry teams to grow disciples and help enable execution of new ministry ideas with spiritual and financial support from VAST leadership.

In addition, Rob will work with elders and VAST leadership support to evaluate/incorporate technology to help the mission and goals of the church. Other duties will be to work with teams to coordinate direction of future church-growth plans and development of strategy for facilities and offices.
