Pastor Robert C. Cochran spent 13 years grading college English papers and working toward a PhD in English Literature before graduating from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio and taking a call to full-time parish ministry in Fruitport, Michigan. Since then, he served as a campus pastor at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo (where he graded more undergraduate English papers as a part-time instructor) before accepting his current position as Senior Pastor at First Lutheran Church in his hometown of Findlay, Ohio. He also began to teach English at the University of Findlay, where his wife, Pam is pursuing a master's degree in Rhetoric and Writing. Bob is living proof that 1) you can go home again and 2) there's a name for teachers who become preachers: "teacher." He has always maintained that his call to the ministry is the surest proof we have that God has a sense of humor!
